other way. Just as a reminder, and taken from a familiar text by Joan Peters, (1984) "From Time Immemorial", certainly a Likud favourite and not particularly mine, as it questions the grievances of the Palestinians and questions their displacement, etc. But she wrote about Zionism p.88 "The concept of the "return" of the Jews from exile to the biblical homeland in Zion - the promised land - was an integral part of Jewish life everywhere, but nowhere was it fervently held or more inextricably interwoven with daily life and long-range hope than among the Sephardim. They were intense in their religious observances." My point is, despite not having the presence of Israel or partial Jewish Palestine pre-1948, there were always Zionists and probably Zionism will endure as our history of persecutions validates the essence of its ideology - a secure home.
