Abstract

Zionism is best described as an abnormal nationalism. This singular fact has engendered a history of deepening conflicts between Israel—in alliance with Western societies—and the Islamicate more generally.

The ultimate goal … is, in time, to take over the Land of Israel and to restore to the Jews the political independence they have been deprived of for these two thousand years … The Jews will yet arise and, arms in hand (if need be), declare that they are the masters of their ancient homeland.

—Vladimir Dubnow, 18821
