The Jerusalem Section of the
Jewish Agency, which is in
charge of all immigration to Is
rael, has arranged a program for
the occasion in which members
of the Jewish Agency Executive
and officials of the Israel Gov
ernment will participate. There
will be military parades, mass
meetings and other events in Is
rael cities, settlements and immi
grant transit centers.
Passing of the one million
mark brings Israel’s Jewish pop
ulation close to the combined
population of Jews, Moslems and
Christians in Palestine in 1939.
It is more than double the Jewish
population in Palestine of a de
cade ago, and more than twelve
times greater than the Jewish
population in Palestine in 1922,
the year the British Mandate was
established.
The swift rise in the Jewish
population is due mainly to un
restricted immigration which be
gan with the establishment of
Israel's independence on May 14.
1948, Mr. Lurie said. In the fif
teen months between Indepen
dence Day and October 31, 1949,
325,000 Jewish immigrants arriv
ed, almost as many as arrived in
the thirty years of British rule.

goose step, he does not put on
valor, it is a sign rather that he
is seeking a narcotic for lost man
hood.
“Never say this is the last
road,” these hounded Jews sang,
yet for six million of them it
was the last road, but it was not
a road that led only to the gas
chamber. Hitler thought that it
was this one way road, but those
Jewish girls of 14 and 16 who
rode off singing the Hatikvah
knew better. For it was these
Jews who created the new Is
rael. It was their suffering which
put iron in the Jewish will, so
that no force could stand against
the will for unconditional nation
al survival.
Leo Schwartz in his book
quotes Prof. Arnold Toynbee as
asking, will some spiritual en
lightenment, (comparable to the
Hebrew Prophets and their birth
of Christianity) be kindled in the
displaced persons who are the
counterparts, in our world, of
these Jewish exiles to whom so
much was revealed in their pain
ful exile by the water of Baby
lon?
We cannot yet answer that
question, but the question itself
is in some way a prophecy of the
fact.
