Quotation from Albert Einstein “I should much rather see agreement with the Arabs ... than the creation of a Jewish state” — 1938

In a speech to the National Labor Committee for Palestine in New York City.

Author : Thematics :
" 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 ... I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain. "
