ZIONISM / ANTI-----yishuv eretz yisroel?

The issue is the oath that Hashem made us swear that we will not violate the integrity of the Golus by taking Eretz Yisroel before Moshiach comes. That means making it a Jewish nation. The Mitzvah of liviing in Eretz Yisroel is fulfilled if you live in Eretz Yisroel whether or not it is a Jewish nation. So you can hold the Mitzvah of Yishuv Eretz Yisroel applies nowadays and still be against Zionism. One has zero to do with the other.

It is a popular scam to try to connect the mitzvah of living in Eretz Yisroel, which is referring to individuals living there under whatever government happens to own it at the time, to Zionism which means that Jews should own it. They have zero to do with each other.

Everyone wants the Golus to end. Prayers of return to Eretz Yisroel have nothing to do with Zionism either. The objection to Zionism is not that they want the Golus to end but rather they have jumped the gun by doing what is only permitted after Golus is over while it still is not.
