Har Tsiyon is the Government for the Nation of Israel. It is the political and legal representative for the People. When acting in behalf of the People externally, it does so via the Ministry of the Exterior as the Nation of Israel (e.g. Body of Israelites). But when acting on behalf of the People internally, it does so via the Ministry of the Interior as Har Tsiyon (e.g. God's Holy Mountain).
What does Har Tsiyon do?
Har Tsiyon serves the Nation of Israel, as its Government. The purpose of any government is to promote the well-being and prosperity of the People it serves. This is a twofold Responsibility:
Internally (domestically), government oversees the economy and the well-being of the Community.
Externally (foreign), government advocates the interests of and negotiates affairs for the People.
What is the Nation of Israel?
The Nation of Israel is an organized Body of Israelites who make-up the biological descendants of the Biblical Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The designation is foremost hereditary, but also political.
What is the difference between Israelites and Israelis?
Israelites are the biological descendants of the Biblical Hebrews. Their Forefathers are the Biblical Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Simply put, Israelite is a hereditary designation determined by ancestral pedigree. It is not possible to become an Israelite, as it is an isolated, predetermined Bloodline based upon paternal ancestral lineage. The Nation of Israel is uniquely comprised of Israelites because, it is a hereditary nation.
Conversely, Israelis are members of the political entity known as the State of Israel. Likewise, Israeli is a political designation (not a hereditary one). Although most Israelis are Jewish, determined according to maternal ancestral lineage, anyone can technically become an Israeli because anyone can become Jewish. The Jewish Community does not comprise a single, isolated, predetermined Bloodline. The Jewish people are not the Biblical Hebrews and do not descend from Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The State of Israel is a political nation.

Are Israelites anti-Semitic, or anti-Jewish?
No (to both questions). It is not possible for Israelites to be anti-Semitic because, they areSemitic. To be specific, Israelites are Hebrew Semites. There are several people groups that are Hebrew and yet even more that are Semitic (excludingJews, who are neither Hebrew nor Semitic*). These terms ("Hebrew" and "Semitic") are not entirely exclusive to the Biblical Hebrews but are almost always used only to refer specifically to them. Israelites are native to the Middle East (Click for Details).
