Einstein Letter Warning Of Zionist Fascism In Israel

Letter That Albert Einstein Sent to the New York Times1948, Protesting the Visit of Menachem Begin

Today, Einstein and many other leading Jews would be considered to be a racists for their anti-Zionist views. Well, what if they actually said that Zionism was fascism - imagine the outrage and condemnation? It would be said that they were very bad people indeed for holding such 'extremist views'!

Black is white, war is peace, the Western neoliberal dictatorship is democracy, our enslavement to work is freedom, we have a free and fair press, being greedy is virtuous, and the West stands for everything that is good.

And the BBC and the Guardian, manned by 'very nice' liberals, can be trusted to tell the truth and not put out right-wing imperialist propaganda to fool the British public and the rest of the World.

Letters to the Editor New York Times


Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine. 

The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughoutthe world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents. 

Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin's behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement. The public avowals of Begin's party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future. 

Attack on Arab Village 

A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base. On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants ? 240men, women, and children - and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem. Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin. The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of the Freedom Party. 

Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority. Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model. During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community. Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.

The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They have reclaimed no land, built no settlements, and only detracted from the Jewish defense activity. Their much-publicized immigration endeavors were minute, and devoted mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots. 

Discrepancies Seen 

The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a "Leader State" is the goal.

In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin's efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin. The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.

Interesting. Thanks for sharing this, Kaivey.

It's a good thing that the U.S. government, with its modern and outstanding computer-generated fiat-money-with-a-keystroke monetary system, can never run out of "dollars" to give to Israel to help it steal more land and kill more Arabs. Otherwise, the government would have to extract real resources in real time via express taxation from the populace in order to make those payments and the populace might catch on to the fact that their wealth is gone and to whom it went.

But that wouldn't be so modern, would it?

Konrad said...

First thing Roddis has said that made sense.
My compliments.

If you’ve ever been to New York City, then perhaps you know that Central Park is beautiful, and it is miraculous because it’s right in the middle of a huge city.

London has many parks like Central Park. Not just one. All are quite beautiful.

Therefore, why not ruin one of the parks with a giant hoax memorial?

Kaivey said...

Churchill starved 3 million Indians to death, some say it was closer to 6 million. Where's the museum, or the memorial? Most people don't even know it happened.

Or the genocide of the Native Americans by the European settlers. No one is interested.

Konrad said...

To cite another example, from 1885 to 1908, Belgian King Leopold II took personal control of the Congo, and turned the nation into a moneymaking machine. His harsh policies to keep people toiling caused 10 million deaths. He enslaved every man, woman, and child in the nation. Workers who didn’t meet their quotes were dismembered or killed. Hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children had their hands chopped off. Countless photos document this.

Speaking of Africans, most people are fine with giving endless millions of dollars to Jews because of the holo-hoax. But people explode with rage when anyone mentions reparations for slavery, which (unlike the hoax) actually happened.

Thank you, Calcagus. And Amen!

"There is no difference between denying that and denying Belgian crimes in the Congo, the Indian famines, the genocide of the Native Americans etc."

There is a slight but important difference.

Belgian crimes in the Congo, the Indian famines, the genocide of the Native Americans etc. actually happened.

Calgacus said...

Unless this is some kind of philosophical skepticism, basically, reasonable people go by evidence.

Using the same standards of evidence that allow the statements that the Belgian crimes etc actually happened, the Nazi holocaust also happened, something about which there was never any serious doubt. For some reason, people want to pick and choose and spout nonsense.

Hey, I'm a Norman Invasion Denier. 1066 never happened. In fact there was no such year. People just decided in 1065 that the next year would be 1067. You know, there are at least two groups, Russians (like Anatoly Fomenko, Garry Kasparov) & Indians like C. K. (Chandra Kant) Raju who separately insist that the current year is actually 1600 or 1500 or something like that.

Both stories say the same Bad Guys - Western Christian medieval monks diabolically invented a fictional history with fictional characters like Holy Roman Emperor Otto the Great, and changed the date by hundreds of years, in some mysterious plot to screw the Indians or the Russians and rip off all their culture and science. At least those fairy tales are more fun and not in bad taste to a few still living people and their families.

Thanks, Dan!

Konrad-- Take 2 doses of Norman Finkelstein and call me in the morning.

Konrad said...

And you take three doses of and call me in the morning.

Incidentally, if the holo-hoax is true, then why is it the ONLY historical claim that is protected by LAW?

We can say whatever we like about any aspect of history except for the sacred holo-hoax lie. Questioning it will get you a five-year prison sentence in much of Europe, precisely because it is a lie.

Truth does not need laws to protect it.

But you two go on living in your little fairy bubble if it makes you feel better.

Konrad said in a thread he’s a national socialist.
