Einstein on Palestine and Zionism by Edward C.
Many Zionists claim Einstein as one of their own. Einstein, however, was a pacifist, a universalist and abhorred nationalism. The recently published book, Einstein on Israel and Zionism: For example Einstein made a presentation to the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry, which was examining the Palestine issue in January and argued against the creation of a Jewish State.
It has been told to our committee by the Zionists that the passionate heart of every Jew will never be satisfied until they have a Jewish state in Palestine. It is contended, I suppose, that they must have a majority over the Arabs.
It has been told to us by the Arab representatives that the Arabs are not going to permit such condition as that, they [sic] will not permit having themselves converted from a majority to a minority. I have asked these various persons if it is essential to the right or the privilege of the Jews to go to Palestine, if it is essential to real Zionism that a setup be fixed so that the Jews have a Jewish state and a Jewish majority without regard to the Arab view.
Do you share that point of view, or do you think the matter can be handled on any other basis? The state idea is not according to my heart.
I cannot understand why it is needed. It is connected with many difficulties and narrow-mindedness. I believe it is bad. In my opinion, yes.
I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. Apart from the practical considerations, my awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power no matter how modest.
I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain — especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight without a Jewish state. It is rather revealing and the WZO ought to know who was and who was not a Zionist.
Upon conclusion of the Congress, Board of the Jewish Agency convened. His political views were remarkably consistent and supported universal human rights. He was opposed to war and chauvinistic ethnic nationalism.
Today Einstein is a revered as a political and scientific icon.
However, many unfortunately forget his wise words on the issue of Palestine and its conflict with political Zionism. Nation Books,p.
