At the time Magnes went to Pales tine, it was of course a promis ed but far from a promising land. Twenty-five years have made a vast difference In Palestine. When Magnes went to settle in Jerusa lem, it was hardly a comfortable place hardly a place to be thought congenial by a man who had been able to live under the most luxurious standards of life in America, if he had wanted to. But Magnes saw the vision of a great Hebrew University and he stayed with it. He had his storms there too differences with Ein stein and with. Weizmann about the University, but after all, the monument to his work is there. "The Hebrew University, there she stands”, he might have said In answer to all criticism. It was with respect to his so THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY called "appeasement” of the Arabs that he was to be subjected to greater criticism by Jews. There is the story about the good Jewish lady who became very wroth with her husband. "I can’t understand you,” she said. "Yesterday, Charley came here and he spoke to you about this, and you told him,-he is right. Today, Jake came and said just the opposite and you told him, he is right. How can you speak that way ? You must be crazy.” “Maybe you are right, too,” said her husband. . v So Magnes maybe was a little right, too. He was right, shall we say, in the sense that we Jews have not always realized that one way or another, we shall have to learn to get along with the Arabs. Many years ago, another great man beloved of Zionism, Achad' Haam, warned the Zionists that they had not apprehended serious ly enough the Arab problem. Truth is hardly ever all one-sided, just as in Nature there Is hardly any thing of pure color. Things are not all black and white. Magnes, I think, had some ele ments of right in his attitude, but he was wrong when he went so far as to be willing to forego the right of full Jewish immigra tion to Palestine. Once you con sent to restrict Jewish immigra tion to Palestine, you have no more Jewish homeland. Palestine just becomes another part of the Diaspora. If we want to create another Diaspora, we can buy land much cheaper in Argentina or some other South American land. The tragic irony of it all was that the Arabs seemed to respond to his concessions less than the Jews. As far as I know, his movement for Ichud, for Arab-Jewish unity counted only Jews among its supporters. We think that the Jews did right in rejecting the elder Magnes for the younger Magnes who used to speak eloquently of the glorious, valorous Maccabeans. But for all that, we cannot fail to honor him for his many fine qualities and for a shining devotion to his people not often matched. Colored Property List it with me I have buyers waiting F.
