Quotation from Albert Einstein “This instinctive feeling of lack of kinship is referable to the law of the conservation of energy” — 1920
Alas, showing his agreement - tinged with racialism - with a postulate of Zionism, the 'inevitability' of the separation of the Jews from the nations as a whole.
- Einstein, Albert (1879-1955) ( 4 quotations )
- Antisemitism is eternal ( 19 quotations )
" Nations with racial differences appear to have instincts which work against their fusion. The assimilation of the Jews to the European nations among whom they lived, in language, in customs, and to some extent even in the forms of religious organisation, could not eradicate the feeling of a lack of kinship between them and those among whom they lived. In the last resort, this instinctive feeling of lack of kinship is referable to the law of the conservation of energy. For this reason it cannot be eradicated by any amount of well-meant pressure. "
