    Zionism is the national emancipation movement of the Jewish people, which were expelled from Judea and hoped to go back for two millennia. At some things Herzl would be immensely pround, pthers he would not clearly understand, and others he would oppose. But he would see free Jews in their homeland, having established a thriving, democratic country, with Jews from all over the world, all races, with rights for Arabs, Druze, Bedouins, and other minorities, and a tiny country speaking Hebrew, being the first most per-capita reading country in the world, after Finland, having made amazing discoveries in collectivism, agriculture, Medicine, Arts, Cuture, science, and exporting more Nobel Prizes than any other country per capita. So go somewhere else to read Herzl's mind.
