perhaps i'm sleepy and missed something..
when did zionism ever specifically mean, "the rights of Jewish population to co-exist with Palestinian Arabs in Palestine." or when did it ever mean anything other than the above quote from wikipedia?
were you just drawing the distinction that it didn't bring up such negative, tense or apprehensive feelings in the past as it does now?
i seem to remember getting the same idea from NF. likely anarcho-syndicalist like chomsky. i can't recall what it was that gave me that impression though.
anyhow, thanks for your detailed answer and not assuming i was trying to just nitpick.
