An overview of the first steps of Zionism as authored by Max Nordau. His insight, as reflected in his writing, is still relevant today regarding many issues concerning Zionism, Anti-Semitism and historical analysis of the early 20th Century.
is a word that can hardly have remained quite strange to any educated
person following the more important movements of the time with some
attention. As generally known it denotes an intellectual tendency, which
in recent years has found numerous followers among the Jews of all
countries, especially those in the East. But comparatively few, among
non-Jews or among Jews, have an altogether clear conception of the aims
and methods of Zionism: non-Jews, because Jewish affairs do not concern
them sufficiently for them to take pains to be informed of details from a
primary source; Jews, because they are purposely misled by the enemies of
Zionism-by falsehoods and slanders-or because even among loyal Zionists
there are not many who have appreciated the full intellectual import of
Zionism and are disposed or able to give of it a clear and comprehensible
presentation without extravagance and polemic vehemence.
readers, I trust, have no preconceived opinion, but only an interest in
being reliably informed concerning a phenomenon of contemporary history. I
shall endeavour to present a statement as concise and temperate as
possible of the facts as they really are, not as they are mirrored in
confused minds or as they are distorted and falsified by calumniators.
