    (to make a cute rhetorical turn out of things) until the late 1920s or early 1930s.  Jews did have years of relative promise up until the late 1920s, but by the time the Birobidzhan Autonomous Oblast was founded, things were already getting dicey -- the idea of giving Jews a territory upon which to develop their own national brand of socialism was a poor disguise for state suspicion of Jews.

      give the Jews an opportunity and they will thrive.    Much of the tragic history is that Jews do we well if given a chance, however brief,  (present conditions being an obvious exception, the jury is out on this statehood thing ).

      Assimilation, readiness for, and resistance against,  is the central argument.   Many anti semitic zionists agreed that the Jew was unassimilable, think Liberia as a solution for the abolitionist/racists, Many Jews (Germans, Brits and US) argued otherwise, that it is possible to be a Jew and a citizen.
