    It is only partly true that Herzl didn't propose dismantling one or another existing national polity. His dealings with Ottoman government envisaged carving out total Jewish autonomy from Ottoman Empire. Besides, his vision of creation of the state for Jews always provided a ticket for subjection of "natives", and sometimes - for the solution of transfer to the other parts of the Empire. At best he thought that the "natives" will appreciate the political subjection for material benefits brought by Jewish money. Quite in the similar line Bishara doesn't propose dismantling Israel when supporting the Palestinian cause. Having "another Arab state where Jews are again a minority in" might "not help the world a bit" just as Israel's creation wasn't of much help (as was with the Jews, it's the prerogative of the nation, not the world). But having one more nation free from oppression by another will make a world better. Just like the Zionists aspired to do in its inception regarding the Jews
