late 19th century reform and adaptation
many projects to create new

a new vocabulary for describing                    communities
a collection of faiths, languages, and                  governing on the ground
imagining a nation was not the only respond to political pressures
the pan-movements
many began to imagine political communities which transcended nations
pan-               movement
not all ideas translate in the nation-state
argued that they spoke for all                   
a nostalgia for a time when all members of a belief cohabited under one              roof
integrated by faith, not by language, nation, ethnicity, not even                   
to be ruled by a sultan or a latter-day             
calling for the defense of Islam against the expanding Christian leaders
Jamāl al-Dīn al-Afghānī (1839–1897)
important              arguing for a this different model of utopia
claimed to be an Afghani
in fact he was from         
didn't want to be identified as a             
1884 moved to           
began publishing an Arabic newspaper in Paris entitled al-Urwah al-Wuthqa, "The Indissoluble         "
called for a return to the original principles and ideals of Islam, and for greater unity among Islamic peoples
an alternative vision of what politics might look like in the Islamic world
hearkening back to older models of               
sought to redeem an older, universal ideal
unlike pan-Islam, Zionists had no state
they had a nation of Jews
but nowhere on the globe could you find a Jewish           
that had been eradicated from the time of the            Empire
the idea was one of return
a return to a homeland called Zion, lost in previous                   
a social and political act to remedy the problems of being a minority in a diaspora
facing rising                       
Russian nationalism in the 1880s and its               
a place where they might project their idea of a nation which would return Jews to an ancient homeland
this experience of being stateless in someone else's state nurtured Zionism
to return home, required creating a home
most Jews lived scattered around the world
                 precedes and created reality
just as in pan-Islam, it begins with major,                    figures
Zvi Hirsch                    (1795-1874)
was an Orthodox              rabbi who expressed views in favor of the Jewish re-settlement of the Land of Israel
taking on messianic qualities

an Austro-Hungarian journalist, playwright, political activist, and writer
one of the fathers of modern political Zionism
formed the World Zionist Organization and promoted Jewish migration to Palestine in an effort to form a Jewish state
seen as a kind of latter-day,                Moses leading his people back home
the              language is a new language

his message had to appeal to the many                            Jews
we will find our moral bearing by                the Holy Land again
many settlers began to return to Palestine, which was a province of the                Empire
began to buy up land from the native          populations
by 1914 some 60,000 Jews had returned and began to buy up, mainly the                lands of what is now Israel
we see around Jerusalem an envisioning of rival models of a homeland for a people who had been              of a state
they wanted a state carved out of the precincts of an                empire
land will become the focal point for tensions for the                    and incoming groups in Palestine
