Antisemitism is a hereditary, incurable psychosis

Leon Pinsker (1821 - 1891) a pre-political Zionism Zionist

In 1882 Pinsker published the pamphlet Auto-Emancipation, in which he called for:

"the foundation of a colonial community belonging to the Jews,
which is some day to become our inalienable home, our country."

He also wrote of antisemitism, or "Judeophobia" as he called it:

“Judaephobia is a psychosis, as a psychosis it is hereditary, and
having been inherited for two thousand years, it is incurable.”
