Why Zionism always was and always will be a terrorist movement

On the eve of the partition resolution in 1947 Jews owned 6-7% of the land in Palestine the vast majority of them being immigrants from Europe yet they were given 55% of the land most of it being owned by Arabs. The partition resolution was completely mad especially it decided to create a 'Jewish' state on 55% of Palestine despite the fact that only 50.4% of the population in this territory was Jewish after decades of Zionist invasion and that was after trying very hard to create bizarre borders to get as many Jews and as few Arabs as possible into a sizable area in Palestine. It was just impossible to create a Jewish state there because Arabs were the clear majority in almost every region and even where they weren't they were a large minority.

The Zionist movement understood that the only way they were going to create a Jewish state (by which they meant a non-Jewish minority of at most 20% could be tolerated) in an area which was predominantly Arab they would have to exterminate or expell the indigenous population. The Zionist project is based on ethnic cleansing and is maintained through ethnic cleansing without it Israel could not exist (see this interview with Benny Morris on that topic for instance) and obviously since the indigenous population was not going to just accept their country being stolen from them by force the Zionists had to resort to massacres and pioneering almost all forms of modern terrorism (bombs in Cafes: first used by Zionists in Palestine on March 17th, 1937 in Jaffa. Bombs on Buses: first used by Zionists in Palestine Aug. 20th-Sep. 26, 1937. Bombs in Market Places: first used by Zionists on July 6th, 1938 in Haifa. Bombing of Hotels: first used by Zionists on July 22nd, 1946 in Jerusalem. Bombing of Foreign Embassies: first used by Zionists on October 1st, 1946 in Rome (against the British). Mining of Ambulances: First used by Zionists on October 31st, 1946 in Petah Tikvah. Letter Bombs: first used by Zionists in June 1947 against British targets in UK. Hijacking civilian aircraft: first used by Zionists on December 12th 1954 against a Syrian airliner that'd just taken off from Damascus and taking the passengers hostage) to keep the Arabs in a constant state of terror so that they would not think to defy Israel (Zionists call this Israel's 'deterrence capacity') in fact the occupation that began in 1967 also came from this because the Zionists felt that the Arabs were collectively becoming too self-confident and thinking they could control their own destinies (Ariel Sharon complained at the time that "We're losing our greatest weapon, the fear of us") and so they launched a massive attack on Egypt to destroy Arab nationalism and give victory in the Arab Cold War to the reactionary/collaborationist/defeatist forces lead by the House of Saud.

General Shlomo Gazit a former head of Israeli military intelligence once said around the time of the Oslo Accords "Israel’s main task has not changed at all, and it remains of crucial importance. Its location at the center of the Arab Muslim Middle East predestines Israel to be a devoted guardian of stability in all the countries surrounding it. Its [role] is to protect the existing regimes: to prevent or halt the processes of radicalization and to block the expansion of fundamentalist religious zealotry." which I think explains it pretty well if you read past the propaganda phrases like 'radicalization' which just means any ideas Israel doesn't like and it's a bit of joke to say that Israel's role is to protect the existing regimes in the Arab world from 'fundamentalist religious zealotry' when the leader of these regimes is SAUDI ARABIA unless that also is a euphemism. Israel knows it cannot exist with Arab freedom because Arabs will never accept it in their midst so they insist on making sure the Arabs stay enslaved and terrorised forever by consistently supporting the most reactionary forces in every internal Arab conflict (read up on Israeli involvement in the Yemen Civil War or the rebellion against the Omani regime in the 1960s-70s for example).

So you can't talk of "Israeli soldiers" committing war crimes as some kind of bad apple when the state itself has been based on ethnic cleansing and terrorism from the beginning without which it cannot exist. Another case is the Gaza massacre where there have been dozens of reports on it and the consistant finding of all of them is that the Israeli forces systemically destroyed the civilians infastructure of Gaza and the means of the society to exist independently for example they bombed almost all of the cement factories in Gaza so the people there couldn't rebuild since they also banned cement from entering under the siege. The bombed the only operating flour mill in Gaza, they bombed the sewage works and water acquifiers in Gaza so they can't clean sewage properly they even destroyed the main chicken farm in Gaza with tanks killing 65,000 chickens running them all over. It wasn't just some soldiers going wild that's what they were ordered to do in fact 'going wild' is the phrase the Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni used to describe Israel's actions (she later said "Israel demonstrated real hooliganism in Gaza, which is what I demanded") all this destruction and acting lunatic again is just part of Israel's doctrine of 'deterrence capacity' terrorising the Arabs into not defying their will including by acting lunatic. Moshe Dayan once said 'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother' and you find that basic doctrine too in how Israel constantly acts like a crazy state, because it's an easy lesson to learn in life that you don't mess with unpredictable, violent crazy people unless you want to get hurt.
