Youssef Jalloul History 103 February 26, 2008 Theodor Herzl (The Jewish Estate) According to Theodor Herzl in his essay “The Jewish State”, the Jews were persecuted against at all levels including political and economical status. He asks several questions regarding the persecutions of the Jewish communities, and where they stand. The main question which Herzl regards as the “Jewish Question” is “Are we to “get out” now and where to? Or, may we yet remain? And, how long?” (pp.533). Herzl answers the question by saying that if they were to stay can they hope for change regarding how they are treated. Even if they are treated better, is it going to be equal to how good as every other citizen is being treated? Most of the nation that coexists with the Jews is either openly or covertly Anti-Semitic. He also mentions that the Jews did not choose to be in finance, but that the conditions that they lived in drove them into it.

Modern Anti-Semitism is caused by political and economical issues. Religious reasons are not so much of modern Anti-Semitism as it was for former times.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
