From the land of Babylonia [Neo-Babylonian Empire] that dismantled [in 589 BC] the first Zionist regime [Kingdom of Judah] and they are today [the Iraqi regime] moving towards dismantling the last Zionist regime [the State of Israel that was established in 1948]. #PalestineWillBeFree #FlyTheFlag for #AlqudsDay2021
In 589 BC, the Neo-Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II laid siege to Jerusalem, culminating in the destruction of the city, the Kingdom of Judah and its temple two years later. King Nebuchadnezzar II also deported the Jews to Babylon.
Zionism emerged only in the late 19th century in Central and Eastern Europe as a national revival movement, both in reaction to newer waves of antisemitism and as a response to Haskalah, or Jewish Enlightenment.
