National Zionism and Bundism - Not Contradictory but Complimentary: A reply
I don't really see it as a middle way between assimilation and Zionism and it sure isn't anything like multiculturalism. If anything it is a fourth-way which allows Jews to exist within society and contribute. The early Jewish Labour Bund wanted to create their own society that didn't effect the non-Jewish society. They wanted to segregate Jews from the rest of society in my opinion this is more desirable than effecting the autonomy of a whole civilisation of people as Zionism has done. It will on,y require the creation of Autonomist Jewish Communes like the early Zionist Kibbutzim.
