Zionism is the nationalist movement to bring back an independent country for the Jewish people in part of the Land of Israel, the site of the first Jewish states.[1] This movement resulted in the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.

History[change | change source]

The word 'Zionism' comes from Zion, which means Jerusalem. Theodor Herzl started the modern Zionist movement. At the time, the Land of Israel was called Palestine. It was controlled by the Ottoman Empire. In 1917, the British made a statement called the Balfour Declaration. They agreed to support a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

Many Evangelical Christians believe that the migration of Jews to Palestine is linked to the apocalypse and prophecy.
