port of a community to keep

a want of solid foundations
in the individual which in
its extreme form amounts to
moral instability.'
"The only remedy, he
argued, is to develop a close
connection with a living
society which would enable
individual Jews to bear the
hatred and humiliation to
which they are often ex-
posed by the rest of man-
kind.
"Herzl is to be admired,
Einstein tells us, for saying
`at the top of his voice' that
only the establishment of a
national home in Palestine
can cure this evil. It cannot
be removed by assimilation.
The Jews of the old German
ghettos were poor, deprived
of civic and political rights,
insulated from European
progress. Yet 'these
obscure, humble people had
one great advantage over us

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
four-man Fatah terrorist
squad responsible for a
number of murders and
other acts of violence was
captured by security forces
on the West Bank recently,
according to an Israel army
spokesman. The gang had
been active in the Ramallah
area north of Jerusalem.
When captured, the
group, termed the "liquida-
tion squad" by inves-
tigators, was found in pos-
session of arms and explo-
sives.
They had reportedly car-
ried out a number of mur-
ders of local Arabs they said
had collaborated with the
Israelis, as well as grenade
attacks on Israeli vehicles.
Another terrorist group
captured recently included

Four Terrorists
Jailed for Life

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Four
Palestinian terrorists were
sentenced last week to life
imprisonMent by a military
court in Gaza. They had
been convicted of commit-
ting acts of terrorism result-
ing in the deaths of two Is-
raelis and the wounding of
others when they tossed
grenades at Israeli vehicles
driving through the Gaza
Strip last January and Feb-
ruary.
The four were identified
as Riad Hilas, Sufian al-
Haddad and Muain Musal-
lam, all 21 years old, and
Faiz Fadaweh, 29.

Israel May End
U.S. Shortwave

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The World Zionist Organ-
ization information de-
partment is recommending
that Israel's shortwave
radio transmissions to
North and South America
be phased out and the re-
sources channeled into tele-
vision broadcasts via satel-
lite and video cassettes and
taped radio shows. A final
decision will be taken
jointly by the Foreign
Ministry, the WZO and the
Israel Broadcasting
Authority.
The WZO information
department said surveys
show that audiences listen-
ing to the shortwave pro-
grams are miniscule.
Medium wave broadcasting
of Israeli material through
local American stations
would be much more effec-
tive, the department be-
lieves, and resources saved
could also be used for TV
programs especially made
for showing in America.
The cutback in short
wave transmissions is con-
templated, the department
stressed, only for the West-
ern hemisphere, not for
Europe (especially Eastern
Europe) where, it is felt,
they still have an important
role to play.

sarily demands from those
who pursue it seriously the
sacrifice of their lives upon
the altar of some ruthless
ideology, or the practice of
despotism — this prop-
aganda, which filled the art
and talk of the day, was
simply untrue."
An introductory essay to
the Berlin book by Noel
Amman, now Vice Chancel-
lor of the University of Lon-
don after having held im-
portant other academic
positions, pays honor to

Berlin, stating that "human
beings delight him because
he has a special gift which
some of those who make sa-
pient judgments upon
people singularly lack."
"Personal Impressions"
proves the eminence of the
author. His new book adds
glory to the author's re-
markable literary career.

WINSTON CHURCHILL
the end of his life, however
critical he was at times of
particular men or policies —
this fact is perhaps among
the highest moral testimo-
nials on which any state or
any movement in this cen-
tury can pride itself.
"Unswerving public sup-
port by an utterly good (and
reasonably well-informed)
man, against a virtually
complete lack of sympathy
for it on the part of the
members of his social and
intellectual milieu (whose
general moral an political
views he largely shared),
may not by itself be enough
to justify a doctrine or a pol-
icy, but neither can it be
dismissed; it counts for

something; in this case for a
great deal."
The Berlin volume con-
cludes with an essay quot-
ing Russian emigres. Berlin
asserts that "Russian
nationalism used as an
antidote against such un-
healthy interests on the
part of, at any rate, the edu-
cation of the educated sec-
tion of the population, and
fed, as so often, by ferocious
anti-Semitic propaganda, in
its turn produced strong
pro-Jewish and pro-
Western feelings which
seem to me to have taken
deep root among the intel-
ligentsia."
There is recognition of
the leadership of
Franklin D. Roosevelt in
the essay which, many
will regret, does not refer
to President Roosevelt's
alleged failures to con-
tribute more effectively
to the rescue of Jews who
were under the heel of
Nazism. In tribute to
FDR, however, he states:
"But Roosevelt's greatest
service to mankind (after
ensuring the victory
against the enemies of free-
dom) consists in the fact
that he showed that it is
possible to be politically ef-
fective and yet benevolent
and human: that the fierce
left- and right-wing prop-
aganda of the 30s, according
to which the conquest and
retention of political power
is not compatible with
human qualities, but neces-

community in which he was
wholly absorbed, in which
he felt himself a fully
privileged member, which
asked nothing of him that
was contrary to his natural
habits of thought. Our
forefathers of those days
were pretty poor specimens
intellecually and physi-
cally, but socially they
enjoyed an enviable
spiritual equilibrium.' "
Additionally noteworthy
is the author's personal
comment on Einstein as a
Zionist, on Israel's role, on
its acceptance by Jewish in-
tellectuals, by world Jewry.
Sir Isaiah comments in his
conclusion in the essay on
Einstein:
"Let me return briefly, in
conclusion, to the state of Is-
rael. The Zionist movement,
like the state of Israel, has
often been attacked, today
more than ever, both by
countries outside its borders
and from within; sometimes
with, more often without,
reason or justice. That Ein-
stein, who tolerated no de-
viation from human de-
cency, above all on the part
of his own people — that he
believed in this movement
and this state and stood by it
through thick and thin, to

with him for the rest of his
life.
"But, as in the case of
Herzl, the decisive factor
in his awakening as a
Jew was not so much
encounter with an un-
familiar doctrine (he had
met adherents of it in
Prague but apparently
took no interest in it then)
as the chauvinism and
xenophobia of leading
Les, in this case in Be-
which led him to
realization of the pre-
carious predicament of
the Jewish community
even in the civilized west.
`Man can flourish,' he de-
clared, 'only when he loses
himself in a community.
Hence the moral danger of
the Jew who has lost touch
with his own people and is
regarded as a foreigner by
the people of his adoption.'
`The tragedy of the Jews is
