This chapter explains that socialism can aid Jews in the pursuit of a Zionist ideal. It argues that anti-Semitism had originated from a Zionist nationalism espoused by despairing and declassed Jewish petty bourgeois, but the equalization of all Jews in extermination camps had shaped a sense of nationalism. The chapter shows how the Jewish working masses, after passing through a series of disappointing experiences, will recognize that their future is linked with that of the proletariat and the revolutionary movement and that they will again, as in the past, take an important place in this movement, and will owe their final emancipation to a devoted struggle for the cause of socialism.

Keywords:   socialism, Zionism, anti-Semitism, Jewish nationalism, Jewish proletariat, Arab proletariat
