JEWISH EXILES FROM ARAB COUNTRIES and PALESTINIAN REFUGEES


THEODOR HERZL:
THE ZIONIST DREAM OF A JEWISH STATE
UNPACKED 2018 (9.33)
What is Zionism, and why is it so controversial? And how (and why) did Theodor Herzl, a secular writer, who didn’t know anything about Judaism, transform an ancient longing into a modern political movement that resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel?
Short answer - antisemitism.
Herzl was present at one of the most explosive trials of the day, which came to be known as the Dreyfus Affair. In the case, Alfred Dreyfus, a high ranking Jewish officer in the French army, was falsely accused of espionage and sentenced to life imprisonment on Devil’s Island (he was later exonerated).

It wasn’t just the trial that got Herzl started on his journey towards Zionism. The cries of “Death for the Jew” that were casually hurled around on the streets of Paris made him understand that a Jewish state was necessary to remove the problem of anti-semitism entirely.

Herzl was seen as a crazy man in his time, and he certainly had some offbeat ideas, such as the idea for a mass conversion to Christianity (which was swiftly despatched), but his vision for a Jewish state became reality.

A modern day Moses, Herzl never saw the country he envisaged, but due to his actions, and the actions of the Zionist leaders that followed, in 1948 the State of Israel came into being.

THE HOPE: THEODOR HERZL
The 700 Club, 2015 (15.23)
During his lifetime, Theodor Herzl was called everything from a hero, to a dreamer, to a heretic. But his influence on the Jewish people is undeniable. Known as the father of modern Zionism, Herzl spent his life trying to find a way to end ...

THEODOR HERZL
AND THE BIRTH OF POLITICAL ZIONISM
Khan Academy 2013 (11.09)

THEODOR HERZL: FOUNDER OF MODERN ZIONISM
Dr. Henry Abramson 2012 (1.01.05)
Jewish History Lecture on Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), the father of modern political Zionism.  Delivered at the Young Israel of Bal Harbour on March 28, 2012.

Who Was Theodor Herzl? Israel:
The Land and Its People
Dr. Henry Abramson 2017 (51.03)
Once a highly assimilated Austro-Hungarian journalist, Herzl was shocked by the treatment of Alfred Dreyfus, the French army captain falsely accused of treason at the turn of the 20th century. The rest of his life became subsumed within a seemingly impossible goal: the reestablishment of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel ending nearly two thousand years of statelessness for diaspora Jewry. Like Moses, he did not merit to see the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, but his vision and determination transformed the millennial aspirations of an exiled people into a political reality.

THE VISION OF CHAIM WEIZMANN (1963)
The Spielberg Jewish Film Archive
Hebrew University of Jerusalem 2010 (26.52)

THE HOPE: CHAIM WEIZMANN
The 700 Club, 2015 (2016)
A chemist by trade, Chaim Weizmann eventually became Israel's first international diplomat and Israel’s first President in 1948. He met with U.S. President Harry Truman to help secure American support for the new State of Israel.


ZIONISM DURING WORLD WAR 1
The Great War 2017 (8.22)
Zionism, the movement for the establishment of a Jewish homeland, got new momentum during World War 1. Zionists, like Chaim Weizmann rallied for support in their respective home countries, others wanted to actively advance the zionist idea by taking part in the war and fought with the Jewish Legions. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 was another step towards fulfilling the idea of a home for the Jewish people.

RABBI SACKS ON THE CONNECTION BETWEEN, ANTISEMITISM, ANTI-ZIONISM,
JUDAISM AND ISRAEL
Rabbi Sacks 2019 (5.57)
The connection between Jews as a people, Judaism as a religion, and Israel as a state. It also shows how this connection is intrinsic to the link between antisemitism and anti-Zionism; something too often overlooked or misunderstood.
