                                  Answer:
   
   The reestablishment of the State of Israel meant the realization of
   the major element of Zionist ideology: the restoration of Jewish
   sovereignty in the Land of Israel.
   
   The Zionist ideal, however, contains facets that are still in the
   process of being realized. The Zionist ideal aspires to:
     * An Israel at peace with all its neighbors
     * An Israel enjoying full political and economic independence
     * The social and economic well-being of all citizens and communities
       residing in Israel.
       
   For the religious zionists, there is also the wish for a modern,
   halachic, Jewish state.
