@ShmuelBrill I hope you weren't trying to win an ideology debate by making a diyuk in English grammar!!! Even if you had made a good one it would have been useless at pointing out actual differences in ideologies. These are all just arbitrary terms chosen for historical reasons.

@ShmuelBrill Is the Whole World a whole thing that is also a world? Sometimes adjectives exclude and sometimes they redefine and sometimes they are part of a title: eg City Bank (is it a Bank located only in the city or only for city dwellers?). Also, how do you define religious: relating to a religion. Doesn't classical zionism have to do with Jews? Isn't Judaism a religion? So is classical zionism religious? Well, in some sense of the word the answer is trivially yes. So maybe religious zionism comes to include a different aspect of the word religious, but not to the exclusion of the first.

comment question on Rashi to M'nachos 57
Drush? I know it doesn't have a tag-wiki, but I have always veiwed it more in the realm of midreshei aggada not midreshei halacha.

@ShmuelBrill I assume religious scientists contribute to their fields. I also assume adjectives indicate a specific subclass related to the noun in question. Maybe that's why there is an adjective: to indicate a specific subclass related to the noun in question.

@msh210 Wikipedia places Religious Zionism in the page about Zionism. Even though there are some ideological differences between many religious and secular zionists, there is little in the main definition of zionism on the wikipeida page that a religious zionist wouldn't agree with. Also, just because Herzl wasn't frum, was his movement inherently anti-frum?

@AdamMosheh But the question is not about them per se. It's about Movements. That's why I removed the tags about specific movements. If you disagree, then go ahead and retag.

@msh210 I don't have a problem with it seeming odd to me. If that's the answer then so be it, but as a native english speaker it will always seem odd to me.

Do you have a source for your quotation of R Soloveitchik?
