Impact of the Zionist Movement

The emergence of the ideology of modern political Zionism during the 1890s caught the imagination of world Jewry and greatly speeded up Jewish immigration to the Holy Land. Zionist ideology holds that the Jews are a people or nation like any other, and should gather together in a single homeland. The word Zionist is used to describe anyone who believes Jews should return to Israel, their ancient homeland.
