A Land Without A People For A People Without A Land
"A land without a people for a people without a land" is a widely-cited phrase associated with the movement to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Although usually assumed to have been a Zionist slogan, the phrase was used as early as 1843 by a Christian Restorationist clergyman and it continued to be used for almost a century by Christian Restorationists.
It is thought by some scholars that this phrase never came into widespread use among Jewish Zionists. On the other hand, Anita Shapira wrote that "The slogan 'A Land Without a people for a people without a land' was common among Zionists at the end of the nineteenth, and the beginning of the twentieth century."
