In essence the Jewish people emerged millenia ago in the Land of Israel as a nation, and their very essence has been that of a nation, as much as a religion. Zionism, can be put in the similar company of nationalisms such as those of the Armenians, the Greeks, the overseas Indians and Chinese, and the African-American nationalism associated with Marcus Garvey.

The undeniable truth is that Zionism is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. This section traces the birth of modern Zionism, amidst the pogroms in Russia, the strengthening of the always present Eretz Yisrael-oriented Jewish nationalism, and the disapointment among liberal Jewish intelligentsia that anti-Semitism would always prevent the cultural assimilation these thinkers desired.

The last part deals with two fundamental issues, Zionism as a a Secular Jewish identity, and the legitimate Jewish right to the Land: the historical right, the primary religious importance and unbroken link of the Land of Israel to the Jewish people, the right of the Jewish people to their tiny strip of Land, considering the vast land and wealth of the many Arab states, and the basic human rights of the Jewish people of the Levant.

One fraction, one branch of that race, and not a big one will have tol ive in someone elses State: well that is the case with all the mightiest nations of the world.

I could hardly mention one of the big nations, having their States, mighty and powerful, who had not one branch living in someone elses State. That is only normal and there is no "hardship" attached to that. So when we hear the Arab claim confronted with the Jewish claim; I fully understand that any minority would prefer to be a majority; It is quite understandable that the Arabs of Palestine would also prefer Palestine to be the Arab state No.

In David Ben-Gurion in his testimony before the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry, he put forward the following paradigm for the Jewsih case: "Our case, and I think you have just seen many such cases in Europe, is like that of the Jews who were forcibly expelled from their homes , which were then given to somebody else.

Those homes changed hands and then after the Nazi defeat some Jewish owners came back and found their homes ocupied.

In many cases they were not allowed to return to their homes. To make it more exact, I shall put it in this way. It is a large building, the building of our family, say fifty rooms. We were expelled from the house, our family was scattered, somebody else took it away and again it changed hands many times, and then we had to come back and we found some five rooms ocuppied by other people, the other rooms destroyed and uninhabitable from neglect.

We said to these ocupants "We do not want to remove you, please stay where you are, we are going back into the uninhabitable rooms, we will repair them". And we did repair some of the rooms and resettle them. Zionism is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, and Israel is the home to a very large portion of the Jewish people.
