Link to image and other letters from EinsteinEdit

A facsimile of this letter is available here and available to subscribers here.

Einstein was a lead campaigner against at least some of what was going on. He co-signed a letter in 12th April 1948 (ie immediately after Deir Yassin) with Leo Baeck, once the spiritual head of the German Jews (and held in a concentration camp by the Nazis): "Both Arab and Jewish extremists are today recklessly pushing Palestine into a futile war. ... we feel it to be our duty to declare emphatically that we do not condone methods of terrorism and of fanatical nationalism any more if practiced by Jews than if practiced by Arabs.""Einstein on Politics", David E. Rowe, Robert J. Schulmann.

Writing from Jerusalem on March 28, 1948: "The claims of their extremists are indeed irreconcilable, but the common Jew and the common Arab are not extremists." Signed by Dr. Magnes, the chairman, Dr. Martin Buber, Professor of Jewish Philosophy at Hebrew University; Dr. David Senator, administrator of the university; Dr. Kurt Wiihelm, rabbi of Emeth Ve'Emunah, liberal congregation in Jerusalem; Simon Shereshevsky, a surgeon, who belongs to the Mizrachi Zionist religious group, and Isaa Molho of the Spanish Jewish community.

Well known scholar Dr Alfred M. Lillienthal's "The Zionist Connection: What Price Peace?" is reviewed here. The book is said to include a detailed account of .. "kidnapping of Einstein for Israel." PRtalk 12:17, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

"copyright infringement" - This is absurd.Edit

If anything, this is an open letter that was intended to reach and inform the largest audience possible. How absurd it is to imagine persons like Einstein to object to publishing it on a page dedicated to knowledge such as Wikisource! The authors must be turning in their graves. -- 02:52, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

That will be a legal issue that you should address with your member of parliament. Wikisource doesn't make the law, we just try to abide by it. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:41, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
