Albert Einstein Opposed Creation Of State Of Israel by Biodun556(m): 12:21am On Nov 28, 2023
Before Israeli independence

Einstein was a prominent supporter of both Labor Zionism and efforts to encourage Jewish–Arab cooperation. In 1938 Einstein explained "In this hour one thing, above all, must be emphasized: Judaism owes a great debt of gratitude to Zionism. The Zionist movement has revived among Jews the sense of community. It has performed productive work surpassing all the expectations any one could entertain. This productive work in Palestine, to which self-sacrificing Jews throughout the world have contributed has saved a large number of our brethren from direst need".[24] Einstein supported the creation of a Jewish national homeland in the British mandate of Palestine but was opposed to the idea of a Jewish state "with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power."[3]: 33  According to Marc Elis, Einstein declared himself a human being, a Jew, an opponent of nationalism, and a Zionist; he supported the idea of a Jewish homeland in Palestine but until summer 1947 conceived of this as a bi-national (Jewish and Arab) state, with "continuously functioning, mixed, administrative, economic, and social organizations."[25][26]

Long before the emergence of Hitler I made the cause of Zionism mine because through it I saw a means of correcting a flagrant wrong....The Jewish people alone has for centuries been in the anomalous position of being victimized and hounded as a people, though bereft of all the rights and protections which even the smallest people normally has...Zionism offered the means of ending this discrimination. Through the return to the land to which they were bound by close historic ties...Jews sought to abolish their pariah status among peoples... The advent of Hitler underscored with a savage logic all the disastrous implications contained in the abnormal situation in which Jews found themselves. Millions of Jews perished... because there was no spot on the globe where they could find sanctuary...The Jewish survivors demand the right to dwell amid brothers, on the ancient soil of their fathers." —Letter to Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India, June 13, 1947[27]

Palestinians and jews have been living together 100s of years before the arrival of Britain and later Zionism. These two phenomenon change the cordial relationship to sour.

The present state of Israel is made up of 40% of the Jews living together with Palestinians before.

The land of Israel has always being within Palestinian Territory. It is expected that the Jews in diaspora were to maintain the status quo but instead decided to colonize and occupy Palestine with US support

Because when jews returned enmass in 1948, Palestinians did not want to see the crowds. They wanted jews as a minority group so that they could oppress them further.
Palestine belongs to jews historically. Arabs occupied the region when jews were exiled. Arabs are tenants , they should learn to live with lanlords.

It is not true they were welcome by Palestinians

Arabs were never tenants. They were the canannites in your Bible. When the Israelites left Egypt, they met the Arabs there.
