BALFOUR’S PROMISED LAND - BBC  Dec 10 2017  38 mins

Historian David Reynolds explores how a desperate war, imperial machinations and racial fantasies led to the creation of the Balfour Declaration in 1917.

______________

The Balfour Declaration is just 67 words - one very long sentence on a small piece of paper issued on November 2nd 1917. But the effects of that sentence are still felt to this day across the Middle East. In the ferment of debate generated by the centenary of the Balfour Declaration this year David Reynolds goes back to its historical roots: to find out how and why it was conceived. Because that document cannot be understood apart from the dramatic autumn of 1917, when the Great War hung in the balance. Britain's Russian ally was on the verge of collapse amidst revolution. The Ottoman empire's military success against British imperial forces was now finally foundering. After the terrible British setbacks of Gallipoli, Kut & disappointment in the war for the Holy Land, General Allenby was finally poised for victory in Palestine. On December the 9th he was able to grant prime minister Lloyd George his Christmas present of Jerusalem's 'liberation' from centuries of Ottoman rule. By that time the fateful Balfour Declaration had been issued in London. Its impact could barely be absorbed across war torn Palestine still suffering the privations of famine, plague and conflict . In London, the small Zionist movement were delighted by their role in shaping the Declaration yet they were just part of a tangle of British imperial planning that, in late 1917, had seen a chance to decide the war and also define the peace. Manipulating Jews and Arabs, Russia and America, British decision makers were convinced of their ability to pull the strings of world politics. But not for the first time (or the last) British leaders would become victims of their own hubris.
The very long sentence was a very British story.

ZIONISM AND JUDAISM  - BBC  Nov 28 2016  30 mins

Ernie Rea and guests discuss the relationship
between Zionism and Judaism. -  Is anti-Zionism anti-Semitic?

______________

A new term of abuse has emerged on social media, Zio, a shortened form of Zionist. Meanwhile the evidence suggests that anti Semitism is on the rise in Britain. There have been high profile cases of politicians who have been disciplined for anti Semitic comments. There appears to be some confusion even within the Jewish community over what Zionism means, whether a distinction should be drawn between anti Semitism and anti Zionism and what the relationship is between Judaism and Zionism. Ernie Rea brings together three Jews to discuss these issues. Robert Cohen is a Jewish blogger and commentator on the British Jewish community and its relationship to the State of Israel: Dr Yaakov Wise is a Manchester based Orthodox Jewish historian and writer: and Jessica Elgot was formerly a journalist for the Jewish Chronicle
and is now writing for the Guardian.
Producer: Rosie Dawson

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 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.
