WORDS OF Theodor Hertzel
(the father of zionism) and Other Zionist Leaders
The term "Zionism" was first
introduced in 1893 by Nathan Birmbaum,
but Theodor Hertzel, an Austrian Jew born
to a prosperous, emancipated Budapest family,
is recognized as the founder of the Zionist
idealogy when he published his book in 1896, "The Jewish
State", where he declared that the cure for
anti-semitism was the establishment of
a Jewish state. As he saw it, the best
place to establish this state was in Palestine.
While Hertzel claimed that the establishment
of a "Jewish" state would cure anti-Semitism,
he also promoted anti-Semitism to further
Quotes from Hertzel and other Zionists demonstrate
their philosophy and the lengths to which
they are willing to go to accomplish their
In the diary of Hertzel, page 14, he writes
a way to solve the problem of anti-Semitism
was to speak to the head priest of Vienna
to get an appointment with the Pope, to
make a mass conversion
of all the Jews of Austria to Catholicism. He continues:
"It should be done on a Sunday, in the
middle of the day, with music, and pride,
publicly. We are the last generation that
held on to the faith of our for-fathers.
The conversion would be in St. Stephen's
Cathedral." (How could you honor a Jew
that wanted to abolish Judaism?)
In the bi-weekly diary, "Temurah", no.2, pg. 12-13, "I didn't circumsize my son Hans, and this will bring the Geula closer."
Ibid. "Simple goyim are better than Rabbis, and the highest are the goyish priests."
In his article "Deutche Tsytung newspaper" Hertzel writes: "The Jews make countries fight each other and when they want, make peace. But whatever happens, they get rich from this." (Hitler said this also).
Diary, page 16: "Antisemitism helps to build this kind of jew, Education that will bring to assimilation."
Diary, page 68: "An idea rose on my heart to bring
on anti-Semitism and to obliterate Jewish wealth.
In the book "Hertzel", this is a quote:
"I bless every jew that converts to
Christianity and my son, the sooner
the better, to save him from anti-Semitism.
After the Dreyfus affair, Hertzel saw the engraned jew
hatred and that the goyim would not
accept the jews with open arms, then
he came up with Zionism, after being
convinced by the British goyim on
the land of Israel. He himself originally
wanted other lands, one of them being
In his book, "Altnoyland", "its understood that I have
to remember (or mention) to discard
negative Jewish things, like the Yiddish
language and observing mitzvos."
Doctor Amnun Raz Kavkotzikin -- historian at the University
of Ben Gurion says: "The country of
Hertzel is a western European anti-eastern
(Sephardic) and anti-religious."
Chaim Chassas, in the newspaper of the Zionist's, Ha'Arutz,
1943, "Zionism and Judaismm is not
one thing but two different things.
And of course two contradicting one
another. Zionism starts at the place
where Judaism is destroyed...one thing
is certain, Zionism is not a continuation
or healing of wounded Judaism, but
rather an uprooting."
Doctor Tom Shagav, historian and newspaper writer, "Zionism
saw itself as competition as to religion,
to define a jew without torah. A Zionist
could be a jew without any faith,
even a Kofer."
Doctor Faul Shaul Landau, the personal secretary of Hertzel,
saw to it that all of Hertzel's writings
were published against the will of
the other Zionists who feared the
open anti-Semitic element of his writings.
Zev Japotinsky in his article "Outside the camp", in
the newspaper "Chadashot HaAretz"
22/10/1919: "In the national home
we will announce that those Jews who
have on themselves the rust of Gulles,
and deny to shave off their beards
and payos will be 2nd class citizens
and will not have the right to vote."
Ben Gurion, in his book "Yehudi ve' od", "The disapora
is ending and everyone is coming,
this still does not make a nation
but a mixed multitude and dust of
man, without a language and education,
without roots. To change dust of man
to a cultured nation is not an easy

by bringing them to England and only
half to Israel, I would choose the
Yoel Bronde/Eichman offered him a deal to save a million
jews for money and the Sochnute decided
not to, and they were murdered.
Wusshishkin, head of the Jewish National Fund in the
1920's (there is a street named after
him in Jerusalem), "What's the difference
between Jews getting killed in the
diaspora and the land of israel? They
[of the disapora] are sacrifices of
a dying nation. There was no purpose
in their death, just like there was
no purpose in their life. Not so with
the sacrifices in our land, we look
at them with pride."
Yitzchak Greenbaum, Zionist responsible for saving Jews
in World War Two, and later Minister
of the Interior under Ben Gurion,
"Concerning using communal money to
save the Jews, no and no and no. Zionism
Chaim Wiessman, first president "I want to save two million
youth, the elders will be lost and
await for what's coming to them. They
are economic dust in a cruel world.
Just a branch of the youth will remain,
the old ones have to work with this,
and make peace with it.
Holphany Heartglass, who later became the minister of
interior under Ben Gurion writes in
1956 guidelines for the counselors,
on how to deal with the Yemenites
who came and were religious. "It's
understood that our intention is to
bring them to the realization that
their faith in hashem is without sense,
etc...and it does not have a right
to exist." He writes further: "it's
better to save 10,000 that can build
a country, even though we can save
a million, but it won't benefit the
country. We have to let them go and
not to save those who are not Zionists,
we causes demoralizatoin and not to
save the harmful element."
A former Sachnut worker, Yigal ben dovid, witness and
testifies: "a special agent from the
Zionists in the land of Israel came
to Europe to see that only their people
were saved. Selection, a few mizrachi
and revisionsalists (from japotinsky)
and no charadim at all." All this
was taken from the disc "Hertzel and
the Zionists" From Rabbi Amnon Yitzchak.
On the tape "why do they hate charadim?" he brings from
Hertzel's diary "The Rabbi should
be locked up in the Synagogues, the
country has its own culture."
Twelve times Hertzel is in the sofe tevos of pesukim,
but always backwards. And all the
pesukim talk about the land of Israel,
because Herzel backwards is "latzara".
Only once is his name written straight,
in the sofe tevos, in the book of
shmuel, "it wasn't good", the advice
which achitovel advised.
1996, newspaper "Mahariv", written by Amir Ben Dovid,
"Hertzel visited the prostitution
houses of Vienna and desired young
girls. He also had a December tree
at his home."
Uri Avnari, present Israeli journalist, went through
all the writings of Hertzel, and he
brings down that Hertzel endorsed
"mass intermarriage", was against
democracy, but rather a republic,
where a prince is elected for life,
and he appoints the government. (Of
course, Hertzel himself wanted to
be the ruler). Would rather not to
have been born Jewish, but to an old
Hertzel was not a good father, did not have a close relationship
with his children, or anyone, except
his mother (his son Hanz committed
suicide). His daughter Polina died
from drugs in those years. His daughter,
Trudy, went out of her mind. His only
grandchild jumped off the Washington
bridge, suicide. Nothing is left from
Hertzel. His daughters were sent to
learn by the Christians, Hertzel was
haughty, filthy, hated himself and
his Jewishness. This is all written
by an American reporter by the name
