    ...as a "proud zionist" residing comfortably in the US, you better do your first reading in zionist history, not in the crudest high-school type patriotic hagiography. If you have never thoroughly read Herzl's Diaries yourself, you can at least trust with confidence the fact that today is a trivial detail even in Israeli top Herzlian scholarship (e.g J. Kornberg): Herzl believed that Dreyfus was guilty, and ceased believing it only when the contrary was known already by most of ordinary people, not only journalists. This myth of victimhood appeared later. Herzl in fact took more sociological look at antisemitism, "dealing" its reasons equally on Jews and the "host peoples". The modern Zionism appeared at the time and place which were the best for the Jews. Nordau's main point of critique of the Western society was that its love for the Jews is too popular, fashionable. If you want, I ca give you a ten-items bibliography on 'Zionist European history', proud American zionist?
