JD: Talk to me about the first Zionist Congress Theodor Herzl the Balfour Declaration and the Partition Plan. Just give us insight as to how these led up to the announcement of the Jewish state.
WM: Jimmy, the dream of the return to Zion as any Bible reading person knows is central to the Jewish people’s existence. We did it coming back from the Babylonian exile and anybody who reads Jewish literature after the second Temple was destroyed or any other prophetic messages from Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc. know that the return to the land is essential to Jewish national belief and identity. So, that was always with us. However having lost political power and sovereignty in the land of Israel Jews returning but as individuals of very small groups are trying to stay in the line as much as possible.
