He was worried about Israel on account of himself. How would Israel cause Mm, an American Jew, to look in the eyes of fellow- Americans. Yes, the Jewish state in Palestine might cause him to look like an alien in the U. S. .People soon might be telling him to get the hell out of here. “We got to be careful,” he told Mr. Hillel day after day, “and Headquarters For Gifts NEWBERRY JEWELERS 124 North First Street JAX BEACH, FLA. 1 -aTrerinnnnmr^^ E.

So are the descendants of Italian Americans, even though they have societies like the Sons of Italy and the Roman Knights and give dinners to celebrate Italy every Columbus Day and drink chiant. “We can’t be Zionists in Amer ica,” the man said. “We must not be members of a foreign political party.” "I am no Zionist either," Mr. Hillel replied. "Never was. But I have self-respect. My self-re spect tells me to be proud of fel low Jews who by their lives and their blood have earned the land of their forefathers. By their in dustry and intelligence they are trying to make the land good. I can't quarrel with them even though I didn't like the idea of a Jewish state in the first place. “That’s my self-respect as a Jew. My self-respect as a human being must admire and give help to other human beings who by great sacrifice have arrived at their ideal, even if they weren’t related to me.
