Oy ir narishe tsionistn
It's amazing now, but a hundred years ago, Zionism was not this untouchable ideal which cannot be criticized without being called a self hating Jew or worse. Here is a song written around the time of the Russian revolution which makes fun of the Zionists for being utopians. These guys sing it in Yiddish, English and Russian.
Of course the Zionists did build a working state, whereas the Jewish communists/socialists were all shot by Stalin. So not sure who had the last laugh.
