but emphasized the importance of
translating the great works of Yid-

may preserve their beauty and val-
ues.
Howe is working on two books
in this spirit; one is the story of
the Yiddish subculture created
in American Jewish life, the sec-

LETTER BOX

Christian Correspondent
Criticizes Anti-Israel View
Editor, The Jewish News:
I was surprised to read that the
general secretary on ecumenical
commissions of the United Presby-
terian Church, could not "condone
by silence" Israel's "territorial ex-
pansion by armed force." How can
Dr. John Coventry Smith be a
Presbyterian. unless he closes his
eyes to all the blood shed by Gene-
va Popery Calvinized? If John Cal-
vin, the founder of Presbyterian,
could burn his opponent, Michael
Servetus at the stake for a differ-
ence of opinion, why condemn Is-
rael for defending herself from an-
nihilation? And does not history
reveal that during the 16th and
17th Centuries, Presbyterianism
was founded and baptized in human
gore"
Furthermore, is it not clearly
prophesied in the Bible that the
Jewish people will return to the
land of their fathers, with none
to make them afraid? God gave
all the land of Canaan to Abraham
and his seed—through Isaac not
through Ishmael. The land included
the territory from the Euphrates
to the Nile rivers (Genesis 15:18).
Hundreds of years later, Jermiah
revealed that though they were
about to go into captivity, at some
later date God would give to the
people of Israel their land. "There
is hope for your future, says the
I Lord, and your children shall come
' back to THEIR OWN COUNTRY,"
(31:17). I suggest that our Pres-
byterian doctor should acquaint
himself with the Bible and his own
church history, before attempting to
debate Israel's right of conquest
by force when surrounded by de-
stroying armies.
Sincerely yours,
