Problem of Jewish Anti-Zionists
Remains to Be Solved, Writer Says

BY SHALOM BEN CHORIN

World Zionist Organization

JERUSALEM — Anti-
Zionism within the Jewish
community has not yet been
completely overcome, even if
at present the Jewish oppo-
nents of Zionism in general
prefer to be not too vocifer-
ous.
Their choir has many
voices, from the old Com-
munists over the New Left,
to some ultra-Orthodox cir-
cles on the one hand, and to
inveterate assimilationists
on the other. Recently a
book by Nathan Weinstock
appeared in the U.S.: "The
End of Israel — The Middle
East Conflict and the His-
tory of Zionism."
The book has aroused dis-
cussions in America and in
Europe, especially among
students and post-gradu-.
ates, and has frequentlyled
to a hardening of anti-Zion-
ist positions. Thus Jews like
Weinstock have, intention-
ally or not, become hench-
men of Palestinian terror-
ists. Weinstock's arguments
may be used for negating
Zionism and the state of Is-
rael without openly embrac-
ing anti-Semitism.
Speaking of an "alleged
continuous existence of the
Jewish people or a Jewish
nation" Weinstock has
found an ally in Dr. Bruno
Kreisky, the Austrian
Chancellor, born a Jew.
Kreisky, too, rejects the
notion of a Jewish people
as "unscientific," which
means that the idea and
reality of a Jewish people
in his view cannot be inte-
grated into Marxist ideol-
ogy.
Kreisky aims at overcom-
ing the__tension between

East and West by establish-
.ing social-democratic re-
gimes in Europe. If Israel
enters this picture at all, it
is only as a nuisance and a
disturbing factor.
At present the challenge
from the Left, the Commun-
ists, the New Left and even
from some — though by no
means all Social Democrats,
is the most serious. But
neither has the anti-Zionist
stance of a small minority
of Jewish Orthodoxy be-
come a thing of the past.
Not only the Naturei
Karta, the dissident ex-
treme Orthodox splinter
group in Jerusalem's Mea
Shearim Quarter, who
might be called 'religious
anarchists, have renewed
their anti-Zionist campaign
owing to the UN resolu-
tions; even the more level
headed Agudath Israel are
against voicing their misgiv-
ings and objections. Thus an
article appeared recently in
the organ of the Agudah
Youth, warning the party
lest it become a Zionist sa-
tellite in the wake of the
trend of Jewish solidarity.
According to this view
Zionism is predominantly
'a secular movement and as
such cannot he fully ac-
cepted by Jewish Ortho-
doxy. The charge of rac-
ism is of course rejected by
those moderate opponents
of Zionism, but its Jewish
legitimacy is not fully rec-
ognized because, ideologi-
cal considerations apart,
the realization of Zionism
in Israel of today is not
always consonant with the
Halakha.
Only a Jewish state based
on the Law of the Torah as
interpreted by rabbinical
tradition can lay claim to
full recognition by the pro-
ponents of these fundamen-
talist views.
The
assimilationists
round the "Ameripn Coun-
cil for Judaism" of Lessing
Osenwald, Elmer Berger
and Maurice Lazaron have
been lately lying rather low,
but that does not mean that
their'particular brand of an-
ti-Zionism is completely ex-
tinct.
Lazaron once went to
such lengths as to say dur-
ing an audience in the White
House that the Jews were a
religious community whose
only common and specific
link was the prayer book,
since the Bible was not ex-
clusively Jewish as the Jews
shared it with the Chris-
tians. As a reform rabbi he
apparently had in mind the
"Union Prayer Book" from
which most references to
Zion and to the national
aspirations of Israel had
been "expurgated".
Meanwhile, it has been
replaced by the "Gates of
Prayer" which clearly re-
flects the road taken by the
Reform Movement from
the original anti-Zionism
via the later non-Zionism
to its present-day Zionist
stance.
However, though the Re-
form movement as such has
admitted and corrected its
former errors, one should
not assume that the whole

of its membership has over-
come its anti-Zionist past.
Even among the Zionist
members — there is a far
cry from philanthropic aid
to Israel to identification
leading to personal fulfill-
ment — aliya.
No similar charge can be
reported on the part of a
broad spectrum of the
Marxist Left -- apart, of
course, from those groups
which have endeavored to
reconcile Zionism with
Marxism. On the Left Wing,
those who had been doctri-
naire anti-Zionists persev-
ere in their negative atti-
tude which is even harden-
ing owing to the perverted
judgment of the UN.
In this situation it is nec-
esSary not only to reply to
the international discrimi-
nation and defamation of
Zionism by the call for its
practical and speedy reali-
zation, but Zionist philoso-
phy must be rethought and
wherever necessary adapted
to the postulates and condi-
tions of today, without, of
course, whittling down or
diluting its essential ele-
ments. Incisive discussions
of facts and ideas rather
than rhetorical proclama-
tions should on the ideologi-
cal level be the response to
the unprecedented chal-
lenge which Zionism is fac-
ing.

Arabs Are Sought
in Socialist Body

PARIS (ZINS)' — Jean
Ziegler, author of "The Liv-
ing and the Dead" and a
member of Switzerland's
National Council, called on
Arab countries to join Israel
as active members of the So-
cialist International.
Ziegler wrote to Le
Monde: "It seems absurd
that the Israeli Labor Party,
which is regularly repre-
sented at meetings by the
head of the Jerusalem gov-
ernment, should be the only
party in the Near East to
take part in the work of the
International."
The Swiss writer said the
recent vote by Sweden at the
Security Council in favor of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization had triggered
a crisis long brewing inside
the Socialist International.
The International, he
claimed, had long been dom-
inated by conservative and
pro-American forces.

Oil Consumption
Increasing in U.S.

WASHINGTON (ZINS)
— After a two-year decline
in the use of petroleum
products in the United
States consumption has be-
gun to turn up.
Federal Energy Adminis-
tration figures show an in-
crease in consumption of 3.7
percent over last year, with
gasoline use up to 6.7 per-
cent and home heating oil
up 7.9 percent. At the same
time, the American Petro-
leum Institute, the oil in-
dustry's lobbying organiza-
tion, reported that oil
imports were up sharply
compared with last year.
