Zelensky’s toespraak voor de Knesset sloeg de plank volledig mis

Terug naar Zion

De Oekraïense president Volodymyr Zelensky in combat uitrusting

De eerste grote fout van de Oekraïense president Volodymyr Zelenskyy kwam op de 25edag van de gruwelijke oorlog die Rusland aan zijn land had opgelegd.

Gelukkig voor Oekraïne kwam dit niet in de vorm van een militaire blunder, maar in zijn videotoespraak tot de Israëlische Knesset. Zijn fout zal het lot van de strijd tegen de Russische indringer niet bepalen, en zal niets veranderen aan het feit dat Oekraïne gerechtvaardigd is in zijn heroïsche houding tegen de agressie van Vladimir Poetin.

Daarmee is het vreemd dat een slimme, goed geïnformeerde leider, wiens retorische vaardigheden een belangrijk onderdeel van zijn repertoire vormen, geen geschiktere manier kon vinden om een ​​beroep te doen op de harten en geesten van Israëli’s en hun gekozen functionarissen, en elke mogelijke fout beging in zo’n korte toespraak.

Zijn toespraak verdoezelde alle belangrijke punten.In plaats daarvan hoorden we kunstmatige…

Joodse immigratie naar het Ottomaanse Palestina vanuit Oost-Europa vond plaats als onderdeel van de massale emigratie van ongeveer 2,5 miljoen mensen die plaatsvonden tegen het einde van de 19e en het begin van de 20e eeuw.

De Eerste Aliyah

Een snelle bevolkingsgroei had tot economische problemen geleid die de Joodse samenlevingen in het Vestigingsgebied (Pale of Settlement) in Rusland, Galicië en Roemenië troffen. Jodenvervolging in Rusland speelde ook een rol in wat later bekend zal zijn als de Eerste Aliyah (1881-1903).

In 1881 werd tsaar Alexander II van Rusland vermoord en de autoriteiten gaven de Joden de schuld van de moord. Als gevolg daarvan hebben, naast de Mei Wetten van 15 mei 1882, grote anti-joodse pogroms het Vestigingsgebied (1791-1917) overspoeld.

Een beweging genaamd Hibbat Zion (liefde voor Zion) verspreidde zich…
