Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) was a Jewish British humorist and writer. He was an early Zionist but left the Zionist movement in 1905 to lead the Territorialist movement, advocating a Jewish homeland in whatever piece of land might be available and supporting the Uganda Scheme. His ideas included creating the Jewish state in such diverse places as Canada, Australia, Mesopotamia and Cyrenaica.
