Quote: 'Many/most of the early Zionists ...did their utmost not to employ local labour' Tom Rowlinson

The early Zionists from Czarist Russia were dissident socialists or communists whose principles were not letting other people work for themselves. They considered themselves being the so called 'working class'. Stupid, weren't they? Or so clever?

ZA and apartheid is a totally different story. Don't mix it up
