Zionist Movement

"We have never based the
Zionist movement on Jewish
suffering in Russia or in any
other land. These sufferings
have never been the
mainspring of Zionism. The
foundation of Zionism was,
and continues to be to this
day, the yearning of Jew-
ish people for its homeland,
for a national center and a
national life."
—Chaim Weizmann

unanimously elected presi-

He qualified his state-
ment by adding that when
there is a difference of opin-
