Zionist Aspiration

Theodor Herzl, the founder of Political Zionism, aspired to create a "Jewish Charter Company", modeled on the above European precedents, which would lease Palestine from the Ottoman Empire and exercise there a de facto sovereign power - a plan described in great detail in Herzl's books Der Judenstaat and Altneuland. In practice Herzl and his successors never managed to mobilize the political and financial backing needed for setting up such a company, and the Zionist Movement eventually established the State of Israel by different means.
