I've been to Israel many times because I have family living there and I can tell you that many of the people living there are against the actions of their government. There are protests all the time and soldiers committing acts of civil disobedience all the time... You just won't hear about it here on the news.
Many Israelis understand that their politicians are crazy just like we believe that our politicians are crazy.
And by the way the word "Zionism" is just another way of saying "patriotism" in Israel... Period.
Many Israelis call themselves "Zionists" just like many Americans call themselves "patriots". Two different words, but they mean the same thing.
