The Jewish Revolution free pdf With the Jewish Revolution classical Zionism has found its true interpretation. In the highest tradition of the soldier-statesman, Dr Israel Eldad advocates a form of Zionism that is unpopular in conventional society. He condemns establishmentarian, social-club Zionism as a belittling of Jewish history and a threat to Jewish lives. In its place, he calls for a revolutionary creed one that dares assert its right to the Jewish homeland- not as defined by diplomats, politicians and Security Council Resolutions, but in biblical, historical terms. He boldly declares that Jewish diplomacy failed to save millions of European Jews, and he accuses world leaders of inviting new Holocausts by denying history s lessons and ignoring its imperatives. He warns the Jewish people that it can rely only on its own forces, and he offers a solution to the Arab problem in the Middle East. The Jewish Revolution combines the passion of the patriot, the logic of the scholar and the sweep of the historian.
