Introduction

HOW FAR WOULD YOU AGREE THAT ZIONISM IS A SOLUTION TO THE JEWISH PROBLEM AND A WAY TO REVIVE THE JEWISH SPIRIT? Anti-Semitism, the prejudice and hostility against the Jews has been around for centuries creating the on going Jewish problem. Most notably, during the Second World War - The holocaust and the Hitler's final solution. One way in which the Jewish problem and anti-Semitism can be solved is through the Zionist movement - The Jewish national movement of the rebirth and renewal in the holy land of Israel - the historical birthplace of the Jewish people.

This in turn gains support from not only Jews but other cultures and religions as well. With more support, the more chance there is of ending anti-Semitism and thus the Jewish problem. However, Zionism also isn't a solution to the Jewish problem. Although it can potentially bring the Jewish population together to fight anti-Semitism and bring them back to there homeland, it doesn't.

Conclusion

Consequently, the Zionist movement doesn't unite the Jewish population in the bid to solve the Jewish problem and anti Semitism which in turn doesn't revive the Jewish spirit. With a disunited population, the difference in views doesn't put forward a united front against the Jewish problem. Therefore the Zionist movement isn't a solution against the problem nor does it help to revive the Jewish spirit. In conclusion, although the Zionist movement should contribute in solving the Jewish problem, in reality it contributes in dividing the Jewish population making it more difficult to get rid of the anti-Semitism that is still and on going problem in the world today. Therefore Zionism is not a solution to anti-Semitism, solving the Jewish problem or reviving the Jewish spirit. ...read more.

    None of these people could plead ignorance after the event, including the SS and the Einzatzgruppen and therefore handing them partial blame and responsibility for the Holocaust would not be incorrect, giving a more broader responsibility for the Holocaust plus initiative in a structuralists view.

  2. The Holocaust

    Jews were seen to be hand in hand with communists and they were blamed for their harmful influence on popular culture.
