Einstein speaks on Zionism; (Dec. 2, 2009)

Einstein was a staunch Zionist since before 1920.  He said in reply to a letter “I discovered that I was Jewish by the non-Jews as I arrived in Germany 15 years ago” (Einstein was appointed professor at the University of Prussia immediately after WWI in 1918 as his theory of relativity was demonstrated by observation).

“The individual Jews reached a high state of evolution but they lacked the support of united communities of blood and tradition:  Individual insecurity generates and provokes huge moral fragility.  Only the creation of a homeland would heal this sick people.

You may call this notion of homeland  “nationalism”, a concept that I hate but you are not wrong in your term. It is a kind of nationalism with no will for acquiring political power but preoccupied mainly to preserving the dignity and moral health of the Jews.

If we were not living within intolerant communities then I would be the first to reject all kinds of nationalism for the benefit of a universal community”. (Didn’t we all read this lame argument?)

Einstein considered Herzl his guiding ideological leader who worked to aiding the Jewish people to discover solidarity for an achievable purpose of establishing a Jewish homeland.

Einstein never missed an occasion in supporting the Zionism cause in meetings, speeches, and collecting funds for various Zionist organizations such as (organization for handicraft and agricultural work, ORT) and (organization for health protection of the Zionists, OZE).

He visited the USA in 1930 to drum up funding and gathering specialist volunteers to establish a medical Jewish university in Jerusalem.  He bantered to the leading literary figures of the period such as Bernard Shaw and H.G Wells in order to draw support from international figures.

Einstein impressed upon the audience that Jews have passion for knowledge, justice, and individual independence that are rooted in Jewish traditions.

Anyone who is contrary to the ideals of reason and individual liberty is necessary “anti-Semite”. (Anti-democratic? Anti-secularism?…)

He claims that Judaism has no concept of the world; it focuses almost exclusively on the moral aspects, the sanctity of life, and the right of all living creatures to life.

Sanctity of life is the supreme value to which all moral values are linked to.

Judaism is not a “faith” because the Jewish God refuses superstitions; the God of the Jews cannot be considered a substitute to life on earth: serving God means serving life on earth; joy for the beauty in this world as the singing of birds, the mumbling of kids toward life.

Einstein would like us to believe that the God of Judaism is sort of a “cosmic spirit “, a symbol for the respect to life and justice and that Marx and Spinoza were inspired by that spirit.

He recalled that Walter Rathenau once said “when a Jew says that he is hunting for his pleasure, then he is lying”

(The brief history of the Zionist State has demonstrated that hunting Palestinians is the prime entertainment of the Israelis, Jews or not).

Einstein claimed that the Sabbath sanctifies animals (so that they may be slaughtered during religious ceremonies?)  Einstein ventures into saying that if the old Jewish traditions relied on fear tactics to impose its values then it has outgrown it (Israel is currently totally relying on instilling fear in the region on a State scale).

Einstein claims that if we factor out the teachings of Jesus and the Jewish prophets from their religious institutions then we discover that we have a doctrine capable of healing humanity of all its social ills. (What is then left to teach?)

He went on “as long as we lived in ghettos, the Jewish communities experienced material and physical hardship but never psychological or social problems.  After the emancipation of the Jews in (most of Europe) and their integration in the European societies then the Jewish youth integrated fully in schools, universities, and professional institutions and started to shun Jewish traditions and customs.

This conversion was unilateral: the overwhelming majority in the European societies engaged in discrimination. We have to clarify our condition as strangers and draw conclusions; we have to work out our social solutions; we have to establish our own syndicates and institutions and refrain from imitating the non-Jewish sets of values and customs.  That is the solution for anti-Semitism

Einstein abhorred the concept of nationalism but made it an exception for the Jews.

He insisted on calling the Palestinians “Arabs”; this is not a simple general label that the Europeans used, but an ideological Zionist indoctrination to rob the native Palestinians of any national identity.

He said that a Jewish homeland should be a spiritual center; the goal is not to establishing a political community but a cultural community founded on Jewish traditions.

Jews and Arabs (in Palestine) got to reach an understanding on guiding lines for efficacious community needs: Switzerland represents a state evolution that caters to the complex constitution among its various nationalities.  Our colonization enterprise to re-construct Palestine should be realized to serve the concrete interests of the Arab population; thus, we should refrain from allowing the mandated power of England to meddle in our affairs”.

These pronouncements came after the “Jewish colonization” came to a standstill in the late 20’s due to the trickling of external funding after the US financial crash and the stubborn resistance of the Palestinian to further Jewish immigration.

It seems that Weizmann managed to coax England to resume its facilitation to Jewish immigration.

In response to a letter from an “Arab” in March 1930, Einstein suggested the formation of mixed “private councils”; four members of each “nationality” would delegates of non-political organizations and syndicates such as medical, legal, worker syndicates or orders and a religious representative.

The private council would meet once a week and discuss and deliberate; all discussions to stay secret then decisions would be disseminated to the public as an entity.

Einstein must have played the dumb: if the Palestinians could find non-political organizations then it was not the case with the Jews. Also, Palestine had a dozen religious sects including many Christian sects and Muslem sects to be able to sending one religious representative.

It is very possible that Europe would have considered reserving statehood for the Western Jews in east Europe because they were integrated in European societies; the main apprehension was the flooding of oriental Jews to Europe, a potentially not agreeable policy to racist Europe.

Einstein must have learned of the genocide committed against the Palestinians after Israel was recognized a State by the UN in 1948; hundred of thousands of Palestinians were displaced by brute force from their towns by a policy of transfer enacted by Ben Gurion.

Has Einstein written or spoken on these crimes against humanity?  

It is said that Ben Gurion PM has proposed to Einstein to be President of the new Israeli State but that he refused for declining health.

All Einstein’s manuscripts and documents are preserved in Israel.

Is there any time limit to have Einstein papers released to the general public?

Einstein was the prime disseminator of the Zionist movement targeting the elite political and academic figures in the western world due to his aura as the leading theoretical scientist since 1918.

It is very plausible that after the recognition of Israel that Einstein was formally hired as a spy so that his pronouncements be strictly controlled and kept secret after Israel decided on political policies that didn’t agree with Einstein’s principles.

Einstein speaks on his impressions of North America; (Nov. 26, 2009)

Einstein resigned his post at the University of Prussia in 1933 as Hitler was elected Chancellor; he was appointed later professor at the University of Princeton.  You may compare what the USA was 70 years ago with its current state of affairs and social behaviors.  Asked on his impressions of North America Einstein wrote:

“The first impression of a visitor is this great technological superiority and rationality in daily common objects:  They are more durable and resistant than those manufactured in Europe. Houses are functional.  Everything is calculated to economize on human labor.  Thus, the workers do not come cheap, a fact that stimulates more technological development and fine tuning of methods of work.”

America is adopting a policy of the clam: it raises prohibitive tariffs on imported goods. (I guess this is no longer the case.

First, the US citizen is working double shifts, if he finds a job, to sustain the decade of the 50’s standard of living and failing miserably;

Second, the US is no longer manufacturing anything of values, since consumerism demand the lowest prices from imported goods.

“MY second impression is that the citizen projects an attitude of positive happiness to life; he smiles, he is friendly, and he is conscious of his value.  The Europeans demonstrate critical minds and absence of generosity, and compassion. The European asks a lot from his entertainments and readings.

The US citizen is willing to sacrifice much in hardship and peace of mind in order to enjoy comfort and pleasure of life; he has a definite purpose and the present is not a state, but a future in the making. He is not strictly psychologically egoistic.  He emphasizes the “we” in his discussions, but he is more conformist than Europeans. Organized work, repartition of tasks, efficiency in industries, at universities, and in private charitable institutions come easily and quickly to him.

The third impression is that State influence is relatively weak; almost all the economy is privatized.  Discrepancies in social earnings are balanced out by social and community feeling of responsibilities toward the less well off.  The rich people are willing to re-distribute a large chunk of their wealth and offer their services to the communities simply because public opinion is strong and demands such tendencies.

Even important cultural functions are in private hands.  Lately, the prestige of the Federal government was eroded due to the prohibition laws on alcoholic beverage.  The rate of criminality increased. It is never advisable to enact laws that you cannot enforce. Public opinion has thus suffered and the press, representing group interests, has replaced the once powerful public opinion.

The fourth impression is that money is very valued, but this impression is highly exaggerated: there is a growing tendency that a happy life should not be that dependent on large fortunes.

The fifth impression is that the US citizen is generally not receptive to classical music and plastic art.

The sixth impression is my admiration to the results of scientific institutions: it is this climate of tolerance, group spirit, and good cooperation among teams that count far more than money injected in the institutions.

The seventh impression is that the US is not interested in getting involved in international problems; the citizens ought to feel personal responsibilities to world predicaments and just get more active in international politics.

(Currently, the State is getting far too involved but the simple citizen never overcame his reluctance to meddle in international affairs).

Einstein said that the last hundred of years witnessed a huge progress in material abundance, but the moral improvement retrograded.

It is like putting lethal and dangerous tools in the hands of kids; a child of 3 years old handling a sharp razor blade!
