  We aspire to lay the cornerstone for a house where the Jewish people will live. We see and feel that we are still surrounded by the old hatred. Since early history our image has been distorted worldwide?Anti-Semites have again fortified our feeling of affiliation. We have come home. Zionism is our return to Judaism even before our return to the Land of the Jews.
