Trap of Zionism Clear from Beginning

Nov 13, 2023

I. Rubanovich, a Russian-Jewish socialist, had this to say about Zionism in 1886:

"What is Palestine? It is a country which belongs to the Turkish empire and is settled by Arabs.… Mr. Lilienblum says that ‘we have a historical right to Palestine.’ … A historical right!... And by what means will you defend that historical right?... The Arabs have exactly the same right. Woe unto you if—under the protection of international bandits and by the manipulation of international intrigue and corrupt diplomacy—you force the peaceful Arabs to defend their rights. They will answer tears with blood and will bury your hereditary claims under the ashes of your homes."
