When Diaspora Jews are prohibited from assimilating into the host society or when they prohibit themselves from assimilating with the host society what is really going on is the Jews are electing not to become part of the host society's civil society. The Jews are either outcasts or they're court Jews but they're never ordinary citizens.
What becomes unleashed when the Jewish people establish a sovereign homeland is that the Jewish population can cultivate their own civil society. The Jews need sovereignty over their own homeland for the sake of being able to cultivate and nurture a Jewish civil society whose values will be safeguarded by the prevailing political culture.
