  • The immaculate conception of Louis Brandeis
    • Brandeis, along with powerful bankers of his day, put a lot of pressure on Wilson to enter WW I ostensibly to prevent the annihilation of 6 million Jews and to protect investments in Europe. (The number 6 million is figurative and used many times when Jews were thought to be imperiled even during the WWI.) He also was a supporter of a national home for Jews in Palestine and wanted nothing less than the defeat of the Ottomans.

      I think this is why his sudden turn to Zionism took place.
