This chapter argues that the problem of anti-Semitism can only be solved by the establishment of a Jewish homeland. This homeland can only be Palestine. Furthermore, this chapter considers arguments regarding the Jews' right to a nation, its place in the world system, and its connections to socialism. The chapter contends that the Jews are indeed a nation, with their own language, their own culture, their own manners of life, and a separate economic and social body. Furthermore, no considerable group of Jews has ever successfully assimilated to another nation. No modern system of socialism or Communism would be able to abolish the national distinctions that exist. There is, therefore, no contradiction between the Socialist ideal of the Jewish worker and the Jewish youth and their national program.
