Theodor Herzl (1860)

Herzl was the founder of modern Zionism. A journalist, he was sent to Paris to report on the Dreyfus Affair and was appalled by the vicious anti-Semitism he observed.

HAPPY 154TH BIRTHDAY Mr. Theodor Herzl!! Applause

"Zionism is the modern expression of the ancient Jewish heritage. Zionism is the national liberation movement of a people exiled from its historic homeland and dispersed among the nations of the world. Zionism is the redemption of an ancient nation from a tragic lot and the redemption of a land neglected for centuries. Zionism is the revival of an ancient language and culture, in which the vision of a universal peace has been a central theme. Zionism is the embodiment of a unique pioneering spirit, of the dignity of labor, and of enduring human values. Zionism is creating a society, however, imperfect it may still be, which tries to implement the highest ideal of democracy - political, social and cultural - for all the inhabitants of Israel, irrespective of religious belief, race or sex. Zionism is, in sum, the constant and unrelenting effort to realize the national and universal vision of the prophets of Israel."

What a terribly tragic price God imposed upon him and his family; early deaths and suicides. Were they predisposed or was there a causal factor, a price to pay for planting a seed for cataclysmic change.

Wow, the name was familiar to me, what a courageous man, Israel is an awesome country, I visited it in 1981 and was sad to leave even though I was only there for two weeks, I was 21 years old then. I am now 51 and would love to take my children to visit it.
