Religious Zionists were mainly observant Jews who supported Zionist efforts to build a Jewish state in the Land of Israel. Kook saw Zionism as a part of a divine scheme which would result in the resettlement of the Jewish people in its homeland. This would bring salvation ("Geula") to Jews, and then to the entire world. After world harmony is achieved by the refoundation of the Jewish homeland, the Messiah will come. Although this has not yet happened, Kook emphasized that it would take time, and that the ultimate redemption happens in stages, often not apparent while happening. In 1924, when Kook became the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Palestine, he tried to reconcile Zionism with Orthodox Judaism. Joe Biden: "I am a Zionist". Biden in 2007 interview: I am a Zionist Barack Obama's new running mate praises Israel In 2007 interview with 'Shalom TV' Yitzhak Benhorin|Published: 08.23.08 , 18:15 WASHINGTON – Senator Joe Biden, who was chosen by Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama to be his running mate in the upcoming US elections, has previously declared himself to be a Zionist. Calling Israel "the single greatest strength America has in the Middle East," he also revealed a Jewish connection in an interview last year. ”Secular Zionists may think they do it for political, national, or socialist reasons, but in fact – the actual reason for them coming to resettle in Israel is a religious Jewish spark ("Nitzotz") in their soul, planted by God. Without their knowledge, they are contributing to the divine scheme and actually committing a great Mitzvah.“ ”The role of religious Zionists is to help them to establish a Jewish state and turn the religious spark in them into a great light. They should show them that the real source of Zionism and the longed-for Zion is Judaism and teach them Torah with love and kindness. In the end, they will understand that the laws of Torah are the key to true harmony and a socialist state (not in the Marxist meaning) that will be a light for the nations and bring salvation to the world.” Shlomo Avineri explained the last part of Kook's answer: "... and the end of those pioneers, who scout into the blindness of secularism and atheism, but the treasured light inside them leads them into the path of salvation – their end is that from doing Mitzva without purpose, they will do Mitzva with a purpose."

Joe Biden (D-Del.) declares “I am a Zionist’ and discusses his support for Israel. https://jewishjournal.com/news/united-states/65458/ The Jewish People Control America, and Americans Know It Ignored by the U.S. media, The Jewish Press reported on May 28 that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is seeking a huge increase in U.S. military aid. A few years ago, here’s what Sharon told Shimon Peres, former president and prime minister of Israel: “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that ... I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.“ Abraham Isaac Kook Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook (1865-1935)–considered the “father” of religious Zionism–succeeded where Alkalai and Kalischer failed in garnering support for religious Zionism. Kook published his first essay on Zionism while serving as rabbi in Boisk, Lithuania. In the essay, he argued that modern Jewish nationalism, even at its most secular, expresses the divinity within the Jewish soul and signifies the beginning of the messianic age. Clearly Israel is an american religious proxy puppet state. How will a practicing Zionist as commander and chief in control of america effect the rest of us who are no the same religion? I expect there will be several secular laws created in support of Zio-Jewish ideologies, starting with free speech as was done with germany. They lied about about the holocaust, why should we expect any better performance today?
