The Holocaust & Zionism

One of commentors notes that one's theological position on Zionism should not change because of events in history, such as the Holocaust or the founding of the State of Israel.   This is refreshing because it reminds us how radical a Sefer like Kol Dodi Dofaik is.  The question though remains.  Can one changes one's theological positions because of historical events? 
(For those into German-Jewish philosophy, this reminds me of Franz Rozensweig's idea that Christianity is a religion in history while Judaism is outside of history.)
