This letter popped up on my Facebook feed today - not sure it's real but did a little digging & found a site indicating the letter was written in reference to:

"The letter was written on 10th April after the massacre of Arabs at Deir Yassin by the Stern Gang terrorists or Lohamei Herut Yisrael (LEHI) meaning fighters for the freedom of Israel.

The Stern Gang terrorists were supported by American Friends of the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel and Mr. Shepard Rifkin was the executive director after the UN Partition of Palestine and prior to the creation of Israel in May 1948."

He was actually offered the 1st Presidency of Israel - which he turned down.

It is real, I have seen it several times.

Einstein was very smart on all aspects, not just science.

Thank you for sharing OP

he got it right on, the british and their "mandate" over a land they have absolutely no say or business in started the mess in the middle east.

and as usual, instead of recognizing their errors, they try to hide behind it, and hope they aren't called on it.

and after all the bullets were fired, well almost anyway, this is what's left. right or wrong.

you don't have to be a genius, just have eyes and a little brain.

This doesn't surprise me, he was a socialist after all.


"Why Socialism?"[1] is an article written by Albert Einstein in May 1949 which appeared in the first issue of the socialist journal Monthly Review. It discusses his belief that capitalism has failed to meet the human potential for creativity and concludes with Einstein's analysis on how to solve these problems, namely through a non-bureaucratic planned economy:

Personally have no dog in the fight but think Israel was founded on kibbutzim which i believe is a socialist idealogy?




A kibbutz is a collective community in Israel. These communities were established throughout the country after thousands of Jews emigrated to Palestine after the Russian Pogroms of the late 19th century/early 20th century. These Jews are referred to as “the pioneers” because they were the people who transformed the uncivilized land of Palestine into the flourishing country of Israel we know today. The kibbutzim all began with agriculture, as the land of Palestine was completely marshy, barren, and infertile. “Ideologically, the kibbutz [was] based on a utopian-communist notion that [sought] to create ‘a new man’ and ‘reformed society,’ which would realize the values of cooperation and equality, in the spirit of socialism” (Halfin, pg.3). This statement immediately brought the declarations in The Communist Manifesto to mind. Like Marx and Engels, the first kibbutzniks (members of the kibbutz) sought to create a new type of society where all would be equal and free from exploitation.


The Kibbutz…a Communist establishment?

Kibbutzim was somewhat socialist when they first started, but now most of them are privately owned. But I wouldn't call them socialist because they were also very nationalist, the Zionist part of the movement, and it wasn't a movement for worker ownership.

Socialism/communism was always an international movement, thus you got the Industrial Workers of the World and other international workers movements. Socialism can only work on an international scale.

BTW when I talk of socialism I mean the labour movement for worker ownership, as that is what socialism originally was. The term has been used in many ways, mostly incorrectly.


LABOR
The Socialist Party stands for the right of all workers to organize, for worker control of industry through the democratic organization of the workplace, for the social ownership of the means of production and distribution, and for international solidarity among working people based on common opposition to global capitalism and imperialism.

7. Meanwhile, as Socialism advances throughout the world, new forces have arisen to threaten the movement towards freedom and social justice. Since the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, Communism has split the International Labour Movement and has set back the realisation of Socialism in many countries for decades.

LOL this is the exact reason I bring up Einsteins socialism. People always bring up things Einstein said as if to say, hey look this guys smart so this must to be true, except when it come to him being a socialist. Then all of a sudden people make excuses.

I am convinced Einstein new far more about what socialism actually was than you do, no offense. In fact a five years old before WWII new what socialism actually was. In fact far more people were socialists than you probably realise.

What communists are taking over lol? How would they do that exactly?

That should make the UN what? You think the UN are communists?

Communism can't 'take over'. It is not a form of control or authority. It is primarily an economic system.

This is why Anarchists can be, and primarily are, communists and socialists.

The Myth of Socialism as Statism


The founders of both Anarchism and Marxism all came out of the dissolution of the Young Hegelians in the 1840s, during the revolutionary upheavals that swept across Europe and destroyed the “Old Order”. Both Mikhail Bakunin and Frederick Engels were present at the December 1841 lecture by Friedrich Schelling denouncing Hegel, representing two of the plethora of radical currents that sprung out of that conjuncture. Also with their roots in the Young Hegelians were Max Stirner, a founder of libertarian individualism, one of the targets of Marx’s The Holy Family, Proudhon, the founder of theoretical anarchism and Bakunin’s teacher....


Marxism & Anarchism

The founder of Anarchism was a socialist...


Proudhon (French) [prudɔ̃]
n
(Biographies / Proudhon, Pierre Joseph (1809-1865) M, French, POLITICS: socialist) Pierre Joseph (pjɛr ʒozɛf). 1809-65, French socialist, whose pamphlet What is Property? (1840) declared that property is theft.

Socialism/communism was never about authority, but liberation from authority. But those that desired power demonized socialist terms, and misinterpreted them in order to hide their true meaning.

Just because Einstein knew how a fridge worked, doesn't mean he was
the smartest man that ever lived, has lived and always will live on in history..

Anyone remember Ayn Rand?
Why Capitalism? Because it offers men the greatest incentive and delivers
to them pride and reason

I've talked to an Anarchist before. He couldn't explain to me his incentive program
within his planned community in regards to caps on electricity utilization and
cost distribution for the product. He couldn't explain why it wasn't necessary
for somebody to trade potatoes for corn. Instead he said "You should have to
eat corn or potatoes for the rest of your life". This is why I don't like Nazism. Facism. Communism.
Because they are unreasonable, and sadistic people. With absolutely no faith
because they haven't experience a moment of real crisis when no man
was around to call upon but an entity invisible to the naked eye.

It's not me saying he was the smartest man to ever live. I was just pointing out that other people say he is until I bring up the fact he was a socialist, and then the excuses start.

Ayn Rand was a truculent, domineering cult-leader, whose Objectivist pseudo-philosophy attempts to ensnare adolescents with heroic fiction about righteous capitalists.

As far as I know, there was NO massacre at Deir Yassin !!. Yes there was a firefight between Israelis and the Arabs at Deir Yassin but was cracked up to be a massacre by some Arabs for propoganda...same as they do now.
