      A subsequent volume will cover the remainder of his life. Weizmann considered that the issuance of the Balfour Declaration was the greatest single achievement of the pre Zionists. Mapam was officially a socialist party with Mapai, but was anti-religious and so remained outside the coalition. Following mainstream Zionist rejection of that proposal, Weizmann was credited later with persuading Balfour, by then the Foreign Secretary, for British support to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine, the original Zionist aspiration. Cecil's personal foibles were representative of class consciousness, which the Zionists overcame through deeds rather than words.

      Zionism's success was facilitated by extraneous circumstances - the holocaust, the weakness and errors of its Arab antagonists, by its own innate strength and, to a large extent, by the quality of its leadership, from the original visionary, Theodor Herzl, to Israel's founding fathers, Chaim Weizmann and David Ben- Gurion. Ben-Gurion was the leader who led the Zionist movement and the Jewish community in Palestine through the final phases of the struggle for statehood and was subsequently the first prime minister who left an indelible imprint on the young Israeli state. But he chose to stop here. Although the Zionists were ignorant of both of these agreements until much later, their aspirations for Palestine were well-known to members of the British government — to Herbert Samuel, Edward Grey and Arthur Balfour, for example. There were also countervailing considerations and the British government's decision to issue the Balfour Declaration in November and to convert it into a Palestine Mandate could not be envisaged without the role played by Chaim Weizmann.

      You see, the Jews are a small people, a very small people quantitatively, but also a great people He was generally associated with the centrist General Zionists and later sided with neither Labour Zionism on the left nor Revisionist Zionism on the right. At this time, brewing differences over competing European and American visions of Zionism, and its funding of development versus political activities, caused Weizmann to clash with Louis Brandeis. Answer that and you have provided some insight not only into the history of Zionism but also into the peculiarities of Jewish national and collective political behavior—indeed, into the heart of Jewish society—in the years just prior to those in which the Holocaust on the one hand, and the successful establishment of a sovereign Jewish state on the other, changed that society out of all recognition. He was a man who for decades—apart from periods of depression and isolation—was constantly talking, traveling, writing: a man of political action as opposed to reflection par excellence.

Description In the pantheon of modern Jewish leaders, Chaim Weizmann is a giant. Her husband James de Rothschild was serving with the French Army, but she was unable to influence her cousinhood to Weizmann's favour.

The Weizmann process changed everything. He was the whole time seeking for ways to realise the Zionist dream.

He stayed at Ginzberg's home in Hampsteadwhence he lobbied Whitehall, beyond his job as Director of the Admiralty for Manchester. Yishuv was put back to the lowest priority.

Would Israel point its bayonets against the American and British peoples? Britain's decision to take control of Palestine contrary to its undertakings to its French and Arab allies and to establish a Jewish national home there was motivated by complex considerations - from a desire to have a land bridge from Iraq to the Mediterranean, through the reluctance to have French presence so close to the Suez Cannel, to the expectations that Jewish influence in the United States and Soviet Russia would be directed to support the war.
