- Herzl, Theodor 1860-1904. Hungarian-born Austrian founder of Zionism. As a correspondent during the Alfred Dreyfus affair, he determined that the solution to anti-Semitism was the establishment of a Jewish national state. He founded the Zionist World Congress in 1897.
“To paraphrase Herzl: If you write it, it is no legend.”
“In the 19th century, there was a man called Herzl, who was a scientist and had nothing to do with politics.”
“In his Complete Diaries, Vol.II. p. 711, Theodore Herzl, the founder of Zionism, says that the area of the Jewish State stretches: “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.””
“But Palestine was an inhabited place when Herzl first decided to take it and it is inhabited now.”
“Maybe you should read Theodore Herzl before you start making these wacko accusations.”
“Ahmad Gharabli/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images MOURNING: An Israeli mourner cried Friday during the funeral of a 22-year-old soldier at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem.”
“As long as I am alive I will work to build this kibbutz," he concludes -- and then adds, with a wink and big smile: "And as Theodor Herzl said, if you wish it, it is no legend.”
“Zionists, follow the political ideals of Herzl, as a group have hundreds and trillions of dollars and now own the world and everything in it.”
“The modern, secular form of Zionism got its start in 1896 when Theodor Herzl wrote a small pamphlet with the title “The Jewish State.””
“Actually, the very secular and assimilated Herzl called his book The Jews 'State, meaning a homeland or state for Jews, not some kind of theocracy for the faithful.”
