Quotation from Max Nordau “Zionism has nothing to do with theology” — Jul. 1897

Zionist leader very close to Theodor Herzl, in an article published in the Zionist newspaper Die Welt, aiming to completely dissociate Zionism from the Jewish religion.

Author : Thematics :

Zionism has nothing to do with theology; and if a desire has been kindled in Jewish hearts to establish a new common-wealth in Zion, it is not the Torah or the Mishnah that inspire them, but hard times.


Quoted by Aviezer Ravitsky, Messianism, Zionism and religious radicalism. Univ. Of Chicago Press, 1993, p.93.
