What Is The Spirit Of Rosh Hashana?

B"H - The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana, is not just the celebration of a new cycle as New Year is in the gentile world: Rosh Hashana is the celebration of Hashem, our G-d's sovereignty. With other words, in Judaism Hashem is King. That cannot be said of Zionism. In Zionism, from the very beginning of it, the aim was to establish a sovereignty of the Jews: This is precisely why Zionism is not only not Judaism, but it is an anti-Torah phenomena in as much as it impedes the Jews to establish a Jewish state on the Land of Israel. It would seem to be obvious that celebrating Rosh Hashana induces people to reject the secular (read kofer) State established by the Zionists on the Land in '48. However, for whatever reason, this is not the case. People can easily, at least formally declare Hashem King and a few months later ask for or give their votes for kneset, for the Israeli parliament. How can that be? Any idea? Please comment.
