I don't mean to be

I don't mean to be inflammatory but how many American Jews ( along with other Jews around the world) flocked over to settlements on the left bank to help neutralize if not eradicate the Palestinian population? Those that did not physically put in their tour of duty in this regard sent money. I'm very confused about the terminology "jews" vs "zionists" and the difference between them. The fact that they (the Jewish community) are very organized as lobbyists is recognized as a political force. Their vociferous support of Israel coupled with loud condemnation of those who criticize Israel seem to have power over many elected officials whose political survival is at risk if they do not publicly support Israel's needs.
