Zionism was a rational attempt to deal with the plight of European Jews who lived in anti-Semitic societies. For some it was ALWAYS an ideology and not just a plan. The plan was so adroitly and diligently pursued that 50 years after the First Zionist Congress Israel was created. Since the realization of the rational plan, Zionism has become the realm of ideologues. Since 19488, as before, the rationalists have been busy building a nation while the Ideologues have driven that nation to the very same sort of tyrannical racism which made Zionism necessary.
