Radical Socialist-Zionist Conspiracy

Analysis/Interpretation/Press: 

The RZA was a group of young people formed out of a conference held in Palmer,
Massachusetts, from February 13-14, 1970. The conference was entitled
“Jewish Radicalism: A Search for a Renewed Zionist Ideology,” and was
attended by members of groups such as the Jewish Liberation Project and
established Zionist youth groups like Hashomer Hatzair (associated with the
Israeli MAPAM party) and Habonim (MAPAI party). The RZA considered itself a
radical American youth group, yet one also committed to Zionism. The meeting
at Palmer produced a document called the “Radical Zionist Manifesto,”
which upheld the twin ideals of socialist Zionism and mutual
Israeli-Palestinian recognition.
