Event: 8th Zionist Congress Is Held in the Hague

User login

The Zionist Congress decides to give precedence to practical colonization steps in Palestine (as opposed to obtaining an internationally recognized charter), to establish a Palestine branch of the organization, and to form a Palestine Land Development Company. The meeting is held in The Hague in order to give high visibility to the Zionist Congress during the Second International Peace Conference (June-October 1907), attended by representatives of world powers, that will lead to what is known as the 1907 Hague Convention.
