The three dominant Zionist politicians (Herzl, Jabotinsky and Ben-Gurion) differed significantly almost in all aspects. The ideological legacy left behind by Herzl was either largely ignored or freely interpreted. His stature as an inviolable symbol of the Zionist movement offered an additional outlet, however. V. Jabotinsky, by a self-declared adherence to this legacy, tried to justify and legitimise his own ostracised trend and turn it into a legal successor of Herzlian Zionism. The interpretation of Herzl he proposed was not left untouched by his own ideas that had not much in common with Herzl himself. Jabotinsky and Ben-Gurion are mostly perceived as major antagonists of the pre-state era. All three men shared, however, some similar viewpoints as well. Their preference of a common goal (defined either as a national, state or collective interest) over particularistic values and the authoritarian style of leadership combined with some democratic norms and values demonstrate clearly certain amount of affinity existing among them on issues that are in no way marginal.
