  1. Lewis Weinstein Lewis Weinstein says:

    Herzl wrote an incredibly idealistic pamphlet, complete with comprehensive details of how he imagined the Jewish homeland would work and how the Jews of Europe would get there It seemed impossible But then it happened.

  2. Fouad Jaber Fouad Jaber says:

    A state is created by a national struggle for existence.Being an Arab it is natural that I oppose the colonisation of Palestine by Isreali settlers but I believe my nationality merely beguiles this sentiment, the opposition stems from an underlining moral rejection.That being said I admire the methodology of zionists, they think and apply scientific reasoning to solve their problems while we Arabs burn flags and chant like enraged baboons at the slightest, seldom existing, injustice we face B A state is created by a national struggle for existence.Being an Arab it is natural that I oppose the colonisation of Palestine by Isreali settlers but I believe my nationality merely beguiles this sentiment, the opposition stems from an underlining moral rejection.That being said I admire the methodology of zionists, they think and apply scientific reasoning to solve their problems while we Arabs burn flags and chant like enraged baboons at the slightest, seldom existing, injustice we face Back to the book, it was written in the spirit of many provocative pamphlets similar to the communist manifesto in being brief, easily written, and instigating a group in a specified course if action with a direct goal in mind Herzl deports from the stipulation that Jews could never fully integrate to host societies because they will always be subject to the malicious masses, a point I can t agree with since we can argue the same for Black citizens, Arabs, Muslims, and a multitude of minorities living in the west He then provides the solution being the establishment of a Jewish state and proceeds in the rest of the book to provide the basic means and jurisdictional reasoning of such an establishment Comparing this pamphlet to those written by ISIS and Al qaida affiliates I see why those fail continually to erect a fully functioning Islamic state Isreal was built not as a theocracy but a nation with significant religious appeals, the fathers of zionism harnessed the power of technology and science because they knew protests alone cannot give birth to nations, the material base must exist to lay a foundation for the ideological proliferation Instead of chanting death to Isreal let s admit we lost because they used a peculiar thing called the brain, apparently we have one too albeit in a latent state, all we need to do is it it it back to life

    I have mixed feelings about this self described pamphlet On the one hand I view it as a practical how to guide for an thoughtful and orderly migration of a long suffering people to a much desired home of their own On the other hand, I see it as a overstated justification for separation even isolation of the same in response to prejudice albeit with sometimes unimaginable consequences From Herzl s vantage point it must have felt like the lesser of two untenable choices Doing something was bet I have mixed feelings about this self described pamphlet On the one hand I view it as a practical how to guide for an thoughtful and orderly migration of a long suffering people to a much desired home of their own On the other hand, I see it as a overstated justification for separation even isolation of the same in response to prejudice albeit with sometimes unimaginable consequences From Herzl s vantage point it must have felt like the lesser of two untenable choices Doing something was better than doing nothing What I find admirable was that Jews took it upon themselves to find and implement their own solution They didn t wait for others to do it for them However, in planning for the implementation of that solution they failed to recognize and consider the implications for Palestinians already occupying the land

    Herzl advocates the formation of a Jewish State and explains the process from the ground up Hindus have much to learn and profit from this treatise.

  7. Victor Victor says:

    I think this is one of the most underrated book of the 19th century This book isthan a book for those that is interested in Israeli history it is about possibly the boldest social experience in humans history on state building, and its outcome in the Middle East.The Jewish State providesthan an Utopian ideology it has presented a blueprint of a practical community building, and its process Zionist movement was not the only ethnic nationalist Utopian movement in the 19th century I think this is one of the most underrated book of the 19th century This book isthan a book for those that is interested in Israeli history it is about possibly the boldest social experience in humans history on state building, and its outcome in the Middle East.The Jewish State providesthan an Utopian ideology it has presented a blueprint of a practical community building, and its process Zionist movement was not the only ethnic nationalist Utopian movement in the 19th century African American exiles once attempted to establish an African Homeland in Liberia, Germans once attempted to Neuva Germania in Paraguay, and many Australian socialists wanted to build their New Australia in the jungle of Paraguay as well However, only Israel successfully built up a successful national state Liberia became one of the poorest nations of the world, and the German, as well as Australian descents, ended up in their impoverished communities Almost all Utopian movements failed except Israel How does Israel succeed This book discusses following contents It discusses the social change of Europe in the 19th century through the change of the role of Jewish Europeans It provides a very practical social engineering and state building, including a very brilliant migration plan, community building, finance It discusses the role of government, military, and religion How to make the national state work Herzl had a smart view It indicated the real and secular cause of Israel Palestine conflict Herzl has stated the geographic advantage of Palestine If you want to comment anything on Israel Palestine conflict, this book is a must read for both pro Israel and pro Palestinian viewers.Overall, the Jewish State will present the practical process, and its historical context behind a so called Utopian ideology It is a book that can inspire both the Israelis and gentiles

    It has never yet been possible now it is possible A hundred or even fifty years ago it would have been nothingthan a dream Today it may become a reality The Maccabeans will rise again Reading Herzl you really feel a deep sense of sympathy for the suffering of the Jews Herzl offers a very pragmatic and systematic road to Jewish emancipation the establishment of Israel The Jews are to set up a Jewish company, which will gradually transfer Jews and Jewish property over into Isra It has never yet been possible now it is possible A hundred or even fifty years ago it would have been nothingthan a dream Today it may become a reality The Maccabeans will rise again Reading Herzl you really feel a deep sense of sympathy for the suffering of the Jews Herzl offers a very pragmatic and systematic road to Jewish emancipation the establishment of Israel The Jews are to set up a Jewish company, which will gradually transfer Jews and Jewish property over into Israel Herzl s pamphlet is relatively short, but ridiculously thorough, almost everything is considered finance, raw materials, Rabbi s, unskilled workers etc Unfortunately, Herzl didn t live to see Israel s creation, nor did he see Israel become what it is today, an incredibly divisive issue and a pariah amongst the international community Israel in Herzl s view is a secular state based on largely secular liberal values, but its illegal actions in the modern day brings great doubt as to how these values have been realised.Another notable thing is Herzl s archetypal self deprecation, something often seen as unique to Jewish humour and Jewish sensibilities one need only watch an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm to see this Herzl describes with scorn the mediocre intellectuals the Jewish community and he doesn t seem to like the Jewish socialists of the time, who tended to seek peace through integration and assimilation.In addition to this, it s difficult to read this pamphlet without seeing Herzl s influence in national liberation movements like the Nation of Islam, although they aren t likely to admit the influence due to their rabidly antisemitic founders Either way, regardless of how Israel is seen in the modern day, Herzl will live on as a prophet and liberator of the Jews

    I really wanted to enjoy this , but it s one of those books that areimportant than they are enthralling to read Herzl had many good ideas, as half formed as some of them were, but I couldn t focus very easily on the middle section of the book This made it an utter chore to get through, despite its short length.I didn t expect to have to read all kinds of bland and repetitive details about how the Jewish state s financial institutions, land allotments, work schedules, etc would opera I really wanted to enjoy this , but it s one of those books that areimportant than they are enthralling to read Herzl had many good ideas, as half formed as some of them were, but I couldn t focus very easily on the middle section of the book This made it an utter chore to get through, despite its short length.I didn t expect to have to read all kinds of bland and repetitive details about how the Jewish state s financial institutions, land allotments, work schedules, etc would operate I probably should have, but I didn t As such, the book to me is worth a read only for its historical value.Interestingly, Herzl didn t once mention the people already living in Palestine at the time He also didn t foresee the Jews of Europe beingpersecuted, expelled, or killed as they would be under the Third Reich I just thought that was worth sharing, as it shows how some of his predictions most certainly did not hit the mark

    It has never yet been possible now it is possible A hundred or even fifty years ago it would have been nothingthan a dream Today it may become a reality The Maccabeans will rise again Reading Herzl you really feel a deep sense of sympathy for the suffering of the Jews Herzl offers a very pragmatic and systematic road to Jewish emancipation the establishment of Israel The Jews are to set up a Jewish company, which will gradually transfer Jews and Jewish property over into Isra It has never yet been possible now it is possible A hundred or even fifty years ago it would have been nothingthan a dream Today it may become a reality The Maccabeans will rise again Reading Herzl you really feel a deep sense of sympathy for the suffering of the Jews Herzl offers a very pragmatic and systematic road to Jewish emancipation the establishment of Israel The Jews are to set up a Jewish company, which will gradually transfer Jews and Jewish property over into Israel Herzl s pamphlet is relatively short, but ridiculously thorough, almost everything is considered finance, raw materials, Rabbi s, unskilled workers etc Unfortunately, Herzl didn t live to see Israel s creation, nor did he see Israel become what it is today, an incredibly divisive issue and a pariah amongst the international community Israel in Herzl s view is a secular state based on largely secular liberal values, but its illegal actions in the modern day brings great doubt as to how these values have been realised.Another notable thing is Herzl s archetypal self deprecation, something often seen as unique to Jewish humour and Jewish sensibilities one need only watch an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm to see this Herzl describes with scorn the mediocre intellectuals the Jewish community and he doesn t seem to like the Jewish socialists of the time, who tended to seek peace through integration and assimilation.In addition to this, it s difficult to read this pamphlet without seeing Herzl s influence in national liberation movements like the Nation of Islam, although they aren t likely to admit the influence due to their rabidly antisemitic founders Either way, regardless of how Israel is seen in the modern day, Herzl will live on as a prophet and liberator of the Jews
