The Zionist movement is a 'Jewish nationalist movement that has had as its goal the creation and support of a Jewish national state in Palestine, the ancient homeland of the Jews'.[1] Since 1948 when the movement fulfilled its aim to create a state of Israel, the movement has continued to exist to support the existing state and attempt to organise Jewish communities around the world. The backbone of the movement in addition to Israeli state are the four National Institutions which are themselves para-statal organisations but which also reach out from their headquarters in Jerusalem to affiliates round the world. The Zionist movement was from the beginning and continues to be, a transnational movement.
