Theodor Herzl

Theodor Herzl

But I am convinced that those Jews who stand aside today with a malicious smile and with their hands in their trousers' pockets will also want to dwell in our beautiful home.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:20]
But we wish to give the Jews a Homeland. Not by dragging them ruthlessly out of their sustaining soil, but rather by removing them carefully, roots and all, to a better terrain.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:26]
Economic distress, political pressure, and social obloquy already drive us from our homes and from our graves. The Jews are already constantly shifting from place to place.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:34]
Four years ago in speaking of a Jewish nation one ran the risk of being regarded ridiculous. Today he makes himself ridiculous who denies the existence of a Jewish nation.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:42]
If anyone thinks that Jews can steal into the land of their fathers, he is deceiving either himself or others. Nowhere is the coming of Jews so promptly noted as in the historic home of the Jews, for the very reason that it is the historic home.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:03]
If you will it, it is no dream.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:09]
It goes without saying that the Jewish people can have no other goal than Palestine and that, whatever the fate of the proposition may be, our attitude toward the land of our fathers is and shall remain unchangeable.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:16]
It is true that we aspire to our ancient land. But what we want in that ancient land is a new blossoming of the Jewish spirit.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:23]
Let sovereignty be granted us over a portion of the earth's surface large enough to satisfy our rightful requirements as a nation. The rest we shall manage for ourselves.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:29]
Nothing prevents us from being and remaining the exponents of a united humanity, when we have a country of our own. To fulfill this mission we do not have to remain literally planted among the nations who hate and despise us.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:34]
Our first object is... the obtaining of sovereignty, assured by international law, over a portion of the globe sufficiently large to satisfy our just requirements.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:42]
Our opponents maintain that we are confronted with insurmountable political obstacles, but that may be said of the smallest obstacle if one has no desire to surmount it.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:48]
Palestine is our unforgettable historic home. The very name would be a force of marvelous potency for summoning our people together.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:56]
The character of a people may be ruined by charity.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:16]
The Jewish people asked nothing of its sons except not to be denied. The world is grateful to every great man when he brings it something; only the paternal home thanks the son who brings nothing but himself.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:23]
The Jews had, as a matter of fact, long been all along the most ingenious entrepreneurs. It was only our own future that we had never built upon a business basis.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:30]
The land which the Society of Jews will have secured by international law must naturally be privately owned.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:36]
The spirit in which the offer was made must of necessity contribute to improving and alleviating the situation of the Jewish people without our renouncing one iota of the great principles upon which our movement is based.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:50]
Those of us who are today prepared to hazard our lives for the cause would regret having raised a finger, if we were able to organize only a new social system and not a more righteous one.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:57]
Truly we have had enough experience with sufferance and protection which could be revoked at will. Consequently, the only reasonable Course of action is to work for publicly legalized guarantees.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:05]
We are organizing Jewry for its coming destiny.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:10]
Zionism demands a publicly recognized and legally secured homeland in Palestine for the Jewish people. This platform is unchangeable.More Theodor Herzl [08/27/2011 01:08:38]
Philanthropic colonization is a failure. National colonization will succeed.More Theodor Herzl [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The Jewish question exists wherever the Jews live, however small their number. Where it does not exist it is imported by Jew immigrants. We naturally go where we are not persecuted, and, still persecution is the result of our appearance...By persecution we cannot be exterminated...the strong Jews turn proudly to their race when persecution bursts out. Entire branches of Judaism may disappear, break away; the tree lives.More Theodor Herzl [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I believe I understand anti-Semitism which is a very complex movement. I see it as a Jew, but without hatred or fear. I recognize what is anti-Semitism is rude jesting, vulgar jealousy of métier, hereditary prejudice; but also what can be considered as in fact legitimate defence.More Theodor Herzl [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
