Zionism was proposed as a solution to the Jewish Question and as an escape from Anti-Antisemitism. The idea is that the only way to escape persecution from countries within the diaspora was to create a land that was specifically Jewish that would be safe for Jews.

Political Zionism started in the late 1800s with Theodor Herzl publishing his book: Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State) and later Altneuland (The Old New Land), but the Jewish sentiment of returning to Zion has existed far longer, since the land of Israel was taken over by the Roman Empire.

Zionism started as a fringe ideology within the Jewish community, with many voicing their disapproval for the idea, but in 1917, during the First World War, Britain was in dire need of support, so they turned to the Jewish community, and in return they created the Balfour Declaration which was a public statement promising a homeland for Jews located in Palestine, which at the time was under the Ottoman Empire's rule.

Zionism is usually portrayed as a mixture of Jewish stereotypes, meaning he likes money, power and being behind conspiracies.
