90 years ago today, 10 000 volunteers were being recruited by the "American Zion commonwealth"

Friday, September 03, 2010

Today's post from 90 Years Ago Today is about a call for volunteers by the "American Zion commonwealth" to go to then-British controlled Palestine and build the foundations for the country then still a number of decades away called Israel. The term Zionist seems to have quite a different feel in the newspapers of 90 years ago; today the word is more of a buzzword or insult than anything else whereas back then organizations had no qualms with using it to describe themselves.
