Herzl, m For nearly jears Jews a G 'apart. Although they became citizens of some nations and lued oppressed and beleagurcd in others, they clung to their faith. They endured. "Into this said a manifesto of a Ziom-L group in 1882, ''we took nith us, of all our glories, only a spark of the fire and this little spark kept us alive the toners of our enemies crumbled into dust And this spark is again kindling and shine for us, a true pillar of fire going before us on the road io Zion." Zion! The Promised Land. It vas the ist Theodor Herzl, who might be called the Tom Paine of Zionism, ivho pointedly established the Zionist concept: that the Jews, all Jews, should once more return to Palestine. In 1897, he wrote in his diarv, ''Todav I founded the Jeui-h state. Today, many would laugh at those '..ords but in frve >ears in 50 understand this." And in 50 jeais, almost to the day, nearly everyone did. Herzl was endowed with such personal mag- netism that he could attract, penetrate and arouss people with great enthusiasm. Zionism, for this onp-time Vipnnese cjmc who nearly bcrame a Christian, was not to be a trickle of individual Jews returning to Palestine but a mass moie- ment of farmers, workers, entrepreneurs, scholars and intellectuals. In 1897 he organized the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, of which the world at large took little note. But the poor, the ignorant, the orthodox flocked to his banner. Although Herzl was to die at 41- in 1501, the seed he planted took root. The Zionists began to redeem Palestine by land for Jewish settlers. Before 1880 there had been some 12.000 Jews in Palestine, mostly the pious AS ho had cornp tr> be buried in the Holy Land. B) 1948, Zionists had purchased acres of desert land, had settled Jews, had founded 233 villages and had planted fne million trees on once barren soil. World War I nearly killed the Zionist ment. Britain had hoped the Ottoman Turkish empire, which controlled the Middle East, would enter the war on the Allied side, but instead it chose the Germans. Anv Palestinian Jew sus- pected of Allied sympathy was hanged; some were deported, and Zionism itself was declared illegal. The Arabs, who also suffered under the Turks were guaranteed certain Middle Eastern terri- tories by the British if the Arabs would revolt against the Turks, which they did under the famed Lawrence of Arabia. This British guar- antee, known as the McMahon correspondence, helped set the stage for the continuing Arab- Israeli conflict which was to come. Some historians have noted the irony in ihe fact that had the peoples in the Middle East dc- their own societies without the interfer- ence of outside powers, the area may have known what peace was like. But this was not to be. "A Gijt of Words." Interpreting the neivs: Israeli military parade exposes vital weakness Bv DAVE THOMAS Canadian Press Staff Writer Israel owes its first 25 years fo its army but even its mili- tary commander won't guaran- tee the Jewish state's security bcyor.d this decade Defence Minister Moshe Da- jan said recently that the Is- j aeh forces can count on un- challenged superiority over their Arab enemies until 1980 hut. in one sense, their exhibi- tion of power at independence celebrations Monday exposed a vital weakness. The screaming flypast over conquered territory was per- formed by Fiench-madc Mirage fighters and American Phantom jets, vhilc many of the tanks rumbling through Jerusalem v.ere refurbished Soviet ma- chines, captured in the 1967 six- day var v'hich more thin quad- rvpleJ Israeli-controlled terri- tory Observers My time and moncv arc working against Is- rael in its arms race with the encircling Arab states and as long as it relies on foreign weapon supplies its long-term futuie is shaky Trained men and women ard the latest equipment now give Israel its proven hegemony over the Arab military world but that supeiiority costs 30 per cent of the national budget Its citizens aie not only among the best trained in the world, they also are the most heavily taxed. The Arab states, on the other hand, grow more and more wealthy from their oil revenues and can more easily keep pace with the escalating costs of so- phisticated weaponry. Oil will cot only provide money it could give the Arabs increasing political influence their denendcnt customers, such as the United States. It seems inevitable that Arab leadeis will exploit the energy situation by demanding a weakened American support of Israel in return for a moie at- tractive petro'eum deal. Although Israel's resourceful domestic arms industry is buildirg a home-designed ict fighter pud an mis- sile, experts say Israel will re- main reliant on American will- ingness to sell arms for some time Understandably it is wor- ried about the new mood of eco- nomic self-interest in Washing- ton It was such a mood that was partially responsible for France's sudden chift in the Middle East when it stopped de- livery to Israel of a fleet of Mi- rage fighters and began selling them to Libya instead. MUST THINK TWICE Any major oil buyers would have to think twice before cut- ting off supplies to the Arabs. If the Soviet Union, for example, decided to provide the Arab ar- mies with ground-to-ground missiles, the important superi- ority of Israeli soldiers and pi- lots might be reduced by a small group of skilled tech- nicians. Scattered missile cites pro- tected by the efficient Soviet anti-aircraft rockets already in- troduced to Middle East would deny Israel the ability to repeat its spectacular 1967 de- struction of enemy air power. David Ben-Gurion, the 86- former prime minister v, ho declared Israel an inde- pendent state May 14, 1948, told celebrants that peace cannot be expected soon "I hope there will be peace, and in eiEjht. 10 or 12 there will be because the Arabs need it badly, but, for the time being, there will net be peace If, however, the Arabs do not need peace because of their wealth ?nd power in the 1980s, Isiael mictfil then be even fur- ther away from peaceful secur- ity than it is now.
