He also thought it would put his own settlements at risk. As expressed in this book, Herzl envisioned the founding of a future independent Jewish state during the 20th century.

Herzl popularized the term "Zionism", which was coined by Nathan Birnbaum. Summary[ edit ] After centuries of various restrictions, hostilities and frequent pogroms , the Jews of Europe have been reduced to living in ghettos. The higher class is forced to deal with angry mobs and so experiences a great deal of discomfort; the lower class lives in despair.
It is reasonable to assume that the Jews will not be left in peace. Neither a change in the feelings of non-Jews nor a movement to merge into the surrounds of Europe offers much hope to the Jewish people: "The Jewish question persists wherever Jews live in appreciable numbers.
Wherever it does not exist, it is brought in together with Jewish immigrants. We are naturally drawn into those places where we are not persecuted, and our appearance there gives rise to persecution.
This is the case, and will inevitably be so, everywhere, even in highly civilised countries—see, for instance, France—so long as the Jewish question is not solved on the political level. The Maccabeans will rise again. Let me repeat once more my opening words: The Jews who wish for a State will have it. We shall live at last as free men on our own soil, and die peacefully in our own homes.
The world will be freed by our liberty, enriched by our wealth, magnified by our greatness. And whatever we attempt there to accomplish for our own welfare, will react powerfully and beneficially for the good of humanity. An infiltration is bound to end badly. It continues till the inevitable moment when the native population feels itself threatened, and forces the government to stop a further influx of Jews.
Immigration is consequently futile unless we have the sovereign right to continue such immigration. As pointed out by Michael Stein, in this passage Herzl accurately predicted what would actually happen forty years later: the influx of Jews into Mandatory Palestine in the s did make the native Arab population feel threatened, leading to the — Arab revolt - which did force the British Government to announce in the White Paper of a stop to the further influx of Jews .
For that reason, Herzl, both in Der Judenstaat and in his political activity on behalf of Zionism, concentrated his efforts on securing official legal sanction from the Ottoman authorities - to no avail.
The instrument envisioned by Herzl was "The Jewish Company" - "partly modeled on the lines of a great land-acquisition company. It might be called a Jewish Chartered Company " - i. The Jewish Company envisioned by Herzl would have charge of both of the properties of all Jews in their present countries and of the lands and properties in the coming Jewish State; it would dispose of the former and provide every Jew with equivalent properties in the new land.
Herzl clearly stipulated that "the Jewish Company will be founded as a joint stock company subject to English jurisdiction, framed according to English laws, and under the protection of England" - the City of London being at the time recognized as the financial capital of the world.
