SAYS ZIONISTS MUST GIVE UI’ HOPE OF HAYING
JEWISH NATIONALITY DOMINANT
Philadelphia (J. T. A.)—“The Zion
ists must give up the hope of having
a Jewish nationality dominant in Pal
estine,” was the statement of Rabbi
W illiam H. P ineshriber, preaching at
Temple Keneseth Israel here Sunday.
“The real cause of the uncalled-for
slaughter of the innocents in Pales
tine—something much like the old po
groms—is a clash between two cul
tures." said Dr. Fineshriber. “There
is today an Oriental revolt against
the West, in India, too, and in Egypt.

with the problem is to say: ‘England
hasn’t done her duty—she must send
more soldiers and put Zionist sympa

of force. There are some Judges to-
day who make this same mistake of
thinking that the problem of moral
delinquency can be settled by force.
