Does Zionism Require a Jewish State?
I'm sure most Jewish libertarians are a bit embarrassed at supporting (or being thought to support) a distinctly non-libertarian state. Maybe we should look into other possibilities.
A Jewish state was not necessary in Release 1.0 of Zionism, which was based on a Jewish homeland in a small corner of the Ottoman Empire. (Herzl was from Austria–Hungary and might have regarded multinational empires as the natural way of doing things.) That even explains such oddities as the Jewish National Fund or the Histadrut which make sense in a Jewish corner but not in a Jewish state. On the other hand, the Ottoman Empire collapsed and its successor the British Empire proved unreliable.
Maybe the best solution is for Israel to become a U.S. state after the U.S. finishes taking over the world. (The Jewish nature of the area could be guaranteed by the Jewish National Fund.) It will, of course, be necessary to have a religion-friendly Supreme Court.
Another possibility is for Israeli Jews to be reclassified as Native Americans and Israel to be reclassified as a reservation. On the other hand, the advisability of such a tactic requires “enlightened,” i.e., self-congratulatory, opinion among American political elites to lurch in the right direction.
