I find it interesting, no, hypocritical that at least nine Arab nations still feel that they must state to the world that "Zionism is racism." Aren't these nations the very same ones that are contending that the Palestinians be allowed to return to their homeland? Zionism was and is the national movement for the Jews to return to their homeland. By any definition, whether it be called Zionism or Palestinian self-determination, the desire to return to one's homeland is not racist.

In an act sure to help repair tattered U.S. relations with Israel and American Jewish leaders, President Bush urged the General Assembly on Monday to unconditionally repeal its controversial 1975 resolution equating Zionism with racism.

By voting overwhelmingly to repeal its infamous resolution characterizing Zionism as "a form of racism and racial discrimination," the U.N. General Assembly has finally moved to erase the moral insult it inflicted on Israel 16 years ago and to redeem its own honor.

A leading House lawmaker on Sunday warned that President Bush could endanger the prospects of a Mideast peace conference in a United Nations speech today by calling for the repeal of a 17-year-old resolution equating Zionism with racism.

President Bush has taken a calculated political risk in calling on the U.N. General Assembly to repeal its notorious 1975 anti-Israel resolution describing Zionism as "a form of racism and racial discrimination." The risk is twofold.
