  Isaac Isaacs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Isaacs was born in Melbourne, the son of a Jewish tailor who had arrived in Victoria from Britain the previous year: his family was originally of Polish-Jewish origin.
Isaacs was not particularly religious, but he insisted that Jewishness was a religious identity and not a national or ethnic one, and he opposed the notion of a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
Isaacs opposed Zionism partly because he disliked nationalism of all kinds, and saw Zionism as a form of Jewish national chauvinism, and partly because he saw the Zionist agitation in Palestine as disloyalty to the British Empire, to which he was devoted.
