    other way than Herzl. First of all it is not so easy - both in terms of academic research and in terms of opposition of Israeli political establishment, Herzlian hagiography of which has been used for everyday political ends until today. The "mediocre" academics were those who don't bother to separate the input of interest from the research matter, as it happened with A. Bein (1941), perhaps the only uncritical biographer of Herzl. All the subsequent scholars, and first of all Israeli biographers, put Herzl in the more complex light which leaves no place for the popular bottom-lines like your "lucid observer". The WZO leaders of Herzl's environment and time mostly had no better opinion for the party despot. The laymen apologists of today extol Herzl's anti-assimilationist State of Jews solution sitting comfortably in USA, like Cipora J. Cohen. BTW, Jeffrey Rubin-Dorsky in her recent paper(2001) argues that it's precisely the US that became the fulfilment of Herzlian dream verbatim.
