Theodor Herzl QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
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.

One of the first results of our movement... will be the transformation of the Jewish Question into a question of Zion.

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.
