By Tazpit Press Service.. “Out of Tzion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined forth.” (Psalms 50:2). The Zionist Federation in Sweden organized its fifth annual rally on Sunday (August 28, 2016) under the theme of “Taking Back Zionism” in order to attempt to reacquaint the Swedish public with the original Zionist concept so as to confront the term’s misappropriation by the media and state institutions. “The main goal of the rally is to create a safe forum for Jews and non-Jews alike to safely declare their pro-Zionist sentiments,” Swedish Zionist Federation Director Saskia Pantell told Tazpit Press Service (TPS).

“The objective is also to re-educate the Swedish population about the meaning of Zionism as the Jewish people’s basic human right to self-determination in their historic homeland. As such, being a Zionist is not confined solely to the Jewish population, but to all political and religious streams,” she added.

“The meaning of Zionism has been distorted; in Sweden it tends to symbolize right-wing extremists,” Jewish Swedish Student Union Chairwoman Nina Tojzner explained to TPS. Read the full story here.
