I agree, but that doesn't stop critics from claiming that Zionism is a racist ideology.

Unfortunately, Zionism is being taken over increasingly by right wing extremists. They pursue a desire to annex all the territory of the West Bank while denying the non-Jewish residents their civil rights. That is clearly a racist goal, and it taints all of Zionism.

On a separate note, those dark skinned Jews you show in the photo suffer terrible discrimination within Israel, based on the color of their skin. It isn't official state policy, but it happens a lot at the community level - with school enrollment, job discrimination, etc. No, Zionism is not a racist ideology IMO, but many followers are unabashed racists.
