The Use of Religion In The Zionist Movement

Published on 09 January 2015, by M. Tomazy.
The founder of  the Zionist movement Theodor Herzl was atheist. And most of the first-generation leaders were atheists too, like David Ben-Gurion. Nevertheless, they used the Torah and Talmud to convince the European and Soviet Jews to migrate to Palestine.
Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli president, had never used the word 'god' in his official speeches, although they came to Palestine, the "promised land",  according to Jewish belief.
