WHY A JEWISH STATE? by Leon L. Feuer


Email this review


A brief book motivated quite obviously by the author's own absorption in the Zionist movement. He is a young Reformed Rabbi in Toledo, Ohio, an ardent Zionist, visualising the Jews as a nation as well as a religious group. In this book he presents the present day aims of his group, in simple, direct fashion. He gives a brief survey of the history of the Jewish people; he stresses the need of a homeland and that homeland, Palestine, he asks that it be made an autonomous state, refuge for the homeless Jewish refugees. But he ignores the other side of the picture, does not recognize the problem of the Arabs' rights and claims, and assumes that the Jews, as a whole, are interested in and capable of building a nation. A book of limited appeal.
