Easton's Bible Dictionary, Matthew George Easton, 1897SION Si'on (lofty), Mount.
1. One of the various names of Mount Hermon. Deut 4:48 only.
2. The Greek form of the Hebrew name Zion, the famous mount of the temple. 1 Macc 4:37, 60; 5:54; 6:48, 62; 7:33; 10:11; 14:27; Hebr 12:22; Reve 14:1 [JERUSALEM
Quiet Talks About Our Lord's Return, Fleming H. Revell Company, 1901Zion
Sunny; height, one of the eminences on which Jerusalem was built. It was surrounded on all sides, except the north, by deep valleys, that of the Tyropoeon (q.v.) separating it from Moriah (q.v.), which it surpasses in height by 105 feet. It was the south-eastern hill of Jerusalem.
When David took it from the Jebusites (Jos 15:63; 2Sa 5:7) he built on it a citadel and a palace, and it became "the city of David" (1Ki 8:1; 2Ki 19:21, 31; 1Ch 11:5). In the later books of the Old Testament this name was sometimes used (Ps 87:2; Ps 149:2; Isa 33:14; Joel 2:1) to denote Jerusalem in general, and sometimes God's chosen Israel (Ps 51:18; Ps 87:5).
In the New Testament (See SION) it is used sometimes to denote the Church of God (Heb 12:22), and sometimes the heavenly city (Rev 14:1).
The Commentary on the Book of Revelation, E.W. Bullinger, 1909Before the tribulation begins the Jew is to be back in his own land, the temple is to be rebuilt, and the old routine of daily sacrifices being offered. When that event actually takes place, it will be a decisive indication of the end within well-defined limits of time. And so any movement among the Jews toward nationalization becomes of intensest interest. The recent Zionist movement among the Jews has been the most distinctive, most advanced, move in that direction since the scattering under Titus. It makes one prick up his ears and begin to pray a bit more earnestly.
But—but, it must be remembered that racial movements like this, indeed all movements working out the fulfilment of prophetic foresight, are a good bit like the rising tide upon the seashore. The waters come up, then go back; they come up a little higher, and again go back. It is by this process repeated many times that full tide is reached at last. This is a good thing to remember in thinking of present events as fulfilling prophecy.
The present rising Jew tide may recede. It did recede toward Africa for a while, only to rise again on the Palestine beach, and then seemed to recede toward the plains of Babylon. Some day it will reach flood-tide. The decisive thing will be the actual Jew nationalization again in Jerusalem. Then "look up, and lift up your heads," for the storm is at hand, and beyond it the wondrous calm of His presence in control.
“God has not yet done with His people Israel. They are already, though in partial blindness (Rom 11:25), feeling their way back to their land, and to a restoration of their national Polity. Since the year 1896, the Zionist movement has been at work to this end. We regard this as leading directly up to this longer period, the Sunteleia (ending with the seven years of Daniel's last week, the Telos), and after the church has been caught up, the movement will rapidly develop and issue in the re-settlement of the Jews in their Land and City in partial independence, but in unbelief. It may be at first under the suzerainty of Turkey, or the protection of the Great Powers; until he arises who will make a covenant with them, and bring on such events as will be the crisis or end of "the Great Tribulation."”
“Although the Zionist movement does not openly profess to act under Divine authority, that is no reason why it should not be most religious. Hence there will be worshippers: and among the worshippers the 144,000 sealed for Divine protection; beside those who suffer martyrdom at the hands of the Beast, and those with whom he makes war.”
Parson’s Bible Atlas, 2012“The Zionist Movement commenced with the first National Congress in 1896, and has made great strides since then. Other changes in the Balkan States, and in the Constitution of Turkey, which took place so unexpectedly in 1908, show us how suddenly a change may take place which will lead up to the re-settlement of the Jews in their own land, perhaps, at first, under the suzerainty of the Sultan; and prepare the way for the rise of the Beast, first, in his mortal stage as the seventh head, and then in his superhuman stage as the eighth king.”
[SIE-yuhn; “lofty”] A name for Mt. Hermon, probably a form of the Phoenician name, Sirion.
[ZIE-uhn; “fortress” (?)] Another name for the Jebusite stronghold, and the se hill of Jerusalem upon which it stood. The use of the name was progressively expanded to include the Temple and eventually, all of Jerusalem. It came to be applied figuratively to the nation of Judah and the whole of the Israelite people. Through this process of change, the name also developed a religious connotation, emphasizing Jerusalem as the city of God, and the Israelites as God's people. In NT times, the spiritual significance of the name is further extended to indicate the church of God and his spiritual kingdom.
The Century Dictionary, an Encyclopedic Lexicon of the English Language, 1895
Zion (zi'on), n.
Figuratively, the house or household of God, as consisting of the chosen people, the Israelites; the theocracy, or church of God; hence, the church in general, or heaven as the final gathering-place of true believers : so called from Mount Zion, the holy hill of Jerusalem, the center of ancient Hebrew worship.
Samaritanism (sa-mar'i-tan-izm). N.
1. The claim of the Samaritans that the Jews were schismatics, the true site of God's sanctuary and worship being Mount Geriziin in Samaria (and not Mount Zion), as shown in their copy of the Pentateuch, which in Deut. xxvii. 4 reads Gerizim for Ebal.
The Century Cyclopedia of Names, 1897Jebusi'te (jeb'u-zlt), n.
One of a Canaanitish nation which long withstood the Israelites. The stronghold of the Jebusites was Jebus on Mount Zion, a part of the site of Jerusalem, of which they were dispossessed by David.

Excerpted from Ben Williams’ Blog, May 19, 2018
It [the scene of death, destruction, and mourning] was merely one of a continuum of Zionist atrocities waged against native Palestinians. It has been the same for decades. The history reads like a made-for-TV series of invasion by unstoppable aliens. Thanks to the full backing by the US Military, the Israelis have run roughshod over the native Palestinians with constant massacres and encroachment upon Palestinian land. Today, Palestinians are forcibly pushed into Gaza which is now their prison. They are forced to live there without adequate food, water, sanitation, or medical facilities. Furthermore, the Israelis kill and maim the Palestinians (men, women, children) at will. They also drive them out of their homes, and claim they are doing this to defend themselves.
The Zionists get by with doing this because the US Government defends them in anything they do. Also, the churches in America brainwash everyone to believe that the Zionist Jews are the descendants of ancient Israelites, and that they have the approval of God to commit the atrocities against the Palestinians. But the truth is that the Zionist Jews are not Israelites at all. They are not Semitic. They are not related to Abraham. They are fakes who have adopted the name “Jew” and then pulled off the biggest hoax of modern times. They were empowered to do this only because they had the backing of the churches (which are not true Christian), the British and US governments, and the money power of international banks.
Read the entire article here: https://benwilliamslibrary.com/blog/?p=6241Looking back, it began in 1948, 700,000 Palestinians began their flight from the city and the region trying to escape the massacres waged by Zionist Jewish militias seventy years ago. Commemorated ever since as the day of “Nakba” – disaster, catastrophe, cataclysm – following them to this day as land is stolen, families expelled, and “settlements” encroach, and Palestinian history is bulldozed.

[Moses] Hess is also the real “father” of the political movement called Zionism, not Theodore Herzl. In 1862, Hess published a book he called Rome and Jerusalem - The Last National Question. In this book he proposed the foundation of a Jewish nation in Palestine. He also proposed that the Jews establish a socialist agrarian system there that would allow them to find “redemption through the land.” These are both central tenets of Zionism. As a Satanist and participant of the Great Plan, it was his aim to reestablish Israel not to benefit the Jews, but in preparation of the coming Antichrist, the mastermind of the Great Plan, King Nimrod.
The Synagogue of Satan by Andrew Carrington HitchcockLionel Walter Rothschild, eldest son of the diabolical controller of the Bank of England, Lord Nathan Rothschild, was a close friend of Zionist Chaim Weizmann. Lionel worked to formulate the draft declaration for a Jewish homeland in Palestine with Weizmann. Weizmann was a Zionist leader, President of the Zionist Organization, and the first President of the State of Israel upon reunification.
The Second World War is to be used to foment the controversy between fascism and political Zionism with the oppression of Jews in Germany a lynchpin in bringing hatred against the German people. This is designed to destroy fascism (which the Rothschilds’ created) and increase the power of political Zionism. This war is also designed to increase the power of communism to the level that it equalled that of united Christendom.
The Rothschilds’ found the Zionist Congress to promote Zionism. Zionism is portrayed as a political movement seeking to secure a homeland for the Jews, but is in reality a conspiracy to bring the entire world under a World Government administered and controlled by Jews, and in particular, the Rothschilds’.
The first meeting of the Zionist Congress is arranged to take place in Munich, however due to opposition from local Jews, this meeting has to be moved to Basle, Switzerland and takes place on 29th August. The meeting is chaired by Ashkenazi Jew, Theodor Herzl, who would go on to state in his diaries,
“It is essential that the sufferings of Jews….become worse….this will assist in realization of our plans….I have an excellent idea….I shall induce anti-Semites to liquidate Jewish wealth….The anti-Semites will assist us thereby in that they will strengthen the persecution and oppression of Jews. The anti-Semites shall be our best friends.”
Zivotofsky v. Clinton, 2009 (10-699)Herzl is subsequently elected President of the Zionist Organisation which adopts the, “Rothschild Red Hexagram,” as the Zionist flag which fifty-one years later will end up on the flag of Israel.
The U.S. Embassy refused to record the place of birth of Petitioner Menachem Zivotofsky as “Jerusalem, Israel” in accordance with U.S. foreign policy to refrain from expressing an official view on whether Jerusalem is part of Israel. His parents filed suit on his behalf, demanding that the State Department comply with Section 214 of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, which requires the State Department to record the place of birth of a U.S. citizen born in Jerusalem as Israel, if the child’s legal guardians so request.
TERMINIELLO v. CITY OF CHICAGO., 1949Zivotofsky also points out that, due to clerical errors, the State Department has identified the place of birth of some American citizens born in Jerusalem as Israel, and that so far there have been no negative repercussions. Furthermore, the Zionist Organization of America argues that the executive branch itself does not consistently follow its own policy of refraining from recognizing Jerusalem as part of Israel. The Zionist Organization of America alleges that many departments and agencies in the executive branch, including the Department of Defense, frequently refer to Jerusalem as part of Israel.
337 U.S. 1 (69 S.Ct. 894, 93 L.Ed. 1131)
A Catholic priest from Alabama was giving a speech in Chicago for Christian Veterans of America. He was charged with “breach of peace”, which “stirs the public to anger, invites dispute, brings about a condition of unrest, or creates a disturbance, or if it molests the inhabitants in the enjoyment of peace and quiet by arousing alarm.” Parts of his speech included:
'Now, this danger which we face—let us call them Zionist Jews if you will, let's call them atheistic, communistic Jewish or Zionist Jews, then let us not fear to condemn them. You remember the Apostles when they went into the upper room after the death of the Master, they went in there, after locking the doors; they closed the windows.
AMERICAN MERCURY MAGAZINE, December 1957, pg. 92'So, my friends, since we spent much time tonight trying to quiet the howling mob, I am going to bring my thoughts to a conclusion, and the conclusion is this. We must all be like the Apostles before the coming of the Holy Ghost. We must not lock ourselves in an upper room for fear of the Jews. I speak of the Communistic Zionistic Jew, and those are not American Jews. We don't want them here; we want them to go back where they came from.
Chuck BaldwinThe invisible Money Power is working to control and enslave mankind. It financed Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Zionism and Socialism. All of these are directed to making the United States a member of World Government.
“Zionism versus Bolshevism,” Illustrated Sunday Herald, 8 Feb. 1920, p. 5, quotes Winston Churchill:
From the days of Spartacus, Weishophf, Karl Marx, Trotski, Belacoon, Rosa Luxenburg, and Ema Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th Century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.
The creation of the Zionist State of Israel has brought turmoil, treachery, death and destruction that is almost unequalled in modern history. The Rothschild conspiracy to create its own Zionist state has its tentacles in both world wars and in virtually every significant act of war afterward.
And after much study, I have come to the conclusion that the current State of Israel—the one created on May 14, 1948, by the Rothschilds—has nothing to do with the Israel of the Bible. I further believe that the Zionist government in Israel illegally invaded and continues to illegally occupy the Palestinian territories of the Gaza Strip and West Bank (including the rebuilt Roman city of Aelia Capitolina, a.k.a. “Jerusalem”): acts that should be regarded as flagrant violations of international law and heinous war crimes against the Palestinian people (many of whom are Christians); acts which continue unto the present hour. I also believe that Israel should be held accountable for its attack against the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967, that resulted in the deaths of 34 American Sailors and Marines.
The advent of the Zionist State of Israel in 1948 has created more turmoil, confusion, division, bitterness, contention and downright hatred and bloodlust among Christian people than anything in 2,000 years of Church history. It has also created more political turmoil, war deaths and destruction than anything in 2,000 years of Western Civilization.
And lest someone attempts to label me as being “anti-Semitic,” let me remind them that there are tens of thousands of Jewish rabbis and Jewish people who are as adamantly opposed to the apartheid Zionist State of Israel as anyone. These same Jewish rabbis actively work for the “speedy and peaceful dismantlement of the State of Israel” (their words, not mine).
Of course, Israel would have never gotten by with these lies and murders—much less the 50 years of horrific occupation that have followed—except that America’s Christians have been hoodwinked into believing that the Rothschild Zionist State of Israel created in 1948 is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy; that the Zionists in Israel are “God’s chosen people”; and that the land of Palestine (extending to the boundaries of Old Testament Israel under kings David and Solomon) has been given to Rothschild’s Israel by God. Therefore, they believe anything Israel does—no matter how evil and murderous it is (including murdering 34 American servicemen)—is sanctioned by God, and Christians must support it.
The erroneous misapplication of prophetic scriptures to the modern Zionist State of Israel has created a political and military monster that is devouring the entire planet. Israel’s military invasion of Egypt (including the attack against the USS Liberty) should have awakened the Christian world to the diabolical plans and purposes of Zionism, but instead it enveloped the eyes of the Christian world with the darkest of blindfolds.
Conspiracy World by Texe Marrs“Zionism is a corrupt criminal cabal of international warmongers (comprising people from virtually all religions and races) who use politics, economics and religion to enrich themselves off of global war. In fact, more than anyone else, Zionists are the ones who are victimizing the Jewish people. And there are tens of thousands of Jewish people who reject Zionism and who do not support Israel’s persecution of Palestinians—and thousands of Jewish rabbis who are vehemently opposed to the Zionist government in Israel. (Research it for yourself, if you don't believe me.) America’s problem is, we have a Zionist government (or, at the very least, a Zionist-manipulated government) in Washington, D.C., and we don’t even recognize it.”
“Zionist sources tied to the Illuminati richly rewarded puppet Jerry Falwell with the gift of a multimillion dollar executive jet and set up crooked lawyer C.I. Scofield as a “Bible scholar,” a hoax of the century if there ever was one!”
“Among the evil culprits I fingered over the years were such anti-American globalist groups as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons and the Bilderbergers. All play important roles in the ongoing conspiracy. But behind them all is the satanic influence and power of Zionists. Zionists, in fact, are the real, but, so often, unheralded authors of the globalist plot.”
“The Zionist Connection is the sinewy thread that ties this entire, vast, traitorous enterprise together. The Bush Administration is only a puppet operation. The Council on Foreign Relations has among its leading members such Zionist fanatics and servants as Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condi Rice, and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. In all, over seventy percent of the membership of the CFR is Jewish! Also on the CFR’s rolls: Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve; Robert Rubin, Clinton’s former Secretary of the Treasury; and Madeleine Albright, Clinton’s former Secretary of State. Every one of these persons is a Jew and a Zionist Agent. Their first allegiance is to the Jewish World Authority.”
“Obviously, Mr. Kissinger was, at heart, an avid admirer of the Kremlin’s oppressive system of totalitarian slavery. Being a Zionist Jew, he no doubt knew that from the days of Lenin and Trotsky, a small cabal of demon-led Zionist Jews secretly controlled the Moscow regime; they alone, though assisted by Stalin, were responsible for the savage repression, torture and murder over the years of some 66 million innocent victims, most of whom were Christians.”
