Levy sets forth why he regards Zionism, as fraught with evil.Sir, - In your issue of the 2lst ult. I drew attention to two statements on the same page of the Jewish Chronicle one by a brother of the Chief Rabbi, complaining that Roumanian Jews are treated as foreigners in the land of their birth-the other by a well-known and consistent Zionist, insisting that Jews are foreigners, that they are in every country but not of it. I was so bold as to state that these two positions are not both tenable, and to deduce from this one or two practical conclusions. In your issue of the 28th ult., Mr. S. Sarna replies that I am lacking in sentimental qualities, that there exist at least two Mr. Levys, and a number of other propositions equally relevant.Now, Mr. Editor, if this were all, I should leave your readers to judge between Mr. Sarna and myself without troubling you with another letter. But your correspondent has provided me with an excellent set of pegs on which to hang a few lines of explanation why I am, to use his words, not only antipathetic to the [zionist] idea, but regard the movement as fraught with evil. Even Mr. Sarna ought to be glad that I seize this opportunity. If I am the thinker he credits me with being, the grounds on which I regard the Zionist propaganda as utterly mischievous - and especially so to Jewish interests - ought not to be devoid of significance.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
