4 Zionist Movement Early 1900 s: Jews slowly begin to return to Palestine and called for a Jewish nation-state. * However? Most people claiming a Jewish ethnicity have been gone from this location for 1,830 years Balfour Declaration: British Bankers and other financial backers support the recreation of a Jewish Nation-State in Palestine / Canaan as long as rights of the Palestinian people were protected.

5 European Jews Return to Palestine; It gets renamed to Israel
