AMERICAN LEGION FIGHTS COMMUNISM
(Continued from Page Three)
4) The editor of a large Jewish monthly magazine spon
sored a pro-Soviet series of articles which we stopped in its
tracks. But there hfe is, still editing, and unmolested.
5) In a top position of a Jewish national organization—a
post which involves travel to Europe and Asia—is a man iden
tified in sworn public and totally unanswered testimony as
a member of a Soviet spy ring.
6) Thirty Jewish Center workers of Chicago are featured
in the Communist “Daily Worker” as demanding the with
drawal of our troops in Korea, and the seating of Red China
in the U. N. They demand this “as Jews.” Recently, the Na
tional Association of Jewish Center Workers passed a resolu
tion supporting the Red-dominated office workers’ union.
These are only examples. We would like to give the full
facts to responsible leaders who wish to act immediately—not
in 1958 or 1965. We don’t find it pleasant constantly to be the
bearers of bad tidings. Some ancient tribes chopped off the
heads of messengers of ill tidings. We note similar reactions
today.
But if we, a group of citizens of some standing and re
sponsibility aware of the seriousness of our statements, can
be of service to some impartial committee of Jews who are
not linked emotionally with the present leadership of our
organizations, we shall feel richly rewarded.
In any event, we are just beginning to fight. We expect
to be even more persevering for God and country, in the im
mediate future.
Very sincerely yours,
Rabbi Benjamin Schultz
Executive Director

of the world to the unscrupulous,
the ignoble, the wicked. Above
all, we must live. Above all, the
Jewish people must live. Death
is futility. It is something which
at best is merely negative. It can
delight no benevolent Creator.
What artist can take joy in seeing
one of his canvasses rubbed out?”
"Yes, yes," continued Rabbi Jo
hanan, "it seems to me. if I could
contact the Roman leaders, we
might—we might—yet live."
“I must warn you,” said Elisha,
“you take your life in your hands
if you make any contacts with
the Romans. If the leaders of
the Jewish defense capture you,
you will be a dead man.”
"A dead man!" exclaimed Rab
bi Johanan ben Zakkai. "Yes.
that's it. I will be a dead man.
Maybe that way I can save the
Jewish people. Thank you, my
good friend Elisha, thank you for
the idea."
Elisha looked on in amazement,
as Rabbi Johanan walked away.
He was transformed from a man
of sorrowful meditation to one
now animated by some dynamic
plan.
Near the gate, a Jewish sentry
looked up as a wagon bearing a
coffin approached. The sight of
a coffin hardly disturbed him.
He had been seeing so many
lately. Nevertheless, he stopped
the wagon.
“Where are you going with that
dead man?” he asked.
"My master." replied the driver,
"made his dying request that his
body be interred with the other
dead of his family in the little
graveyard outside the gate."
“Is not the whole country a
graveyard?” said the sentry.
“The enemy outside of the gate
may not grant permission.” “But
surely,” said the driver, “the
enemy will not object to putting
a dead man in the ground.”
"Then go if thou wilt." said the
Jewish sentry.
The wagon with the coffin
moved beyond the gate and had

not gone far when a Roman sen
try ordered it to halt.
The sentry lifted the lid of the
coffin. The eyes of Rabbi Jo
hanan ben Zakkai lit up with a
half smile. "Jupiter Pluvius,"
exclaimed the Reman soldier, "I
hm bewitched. A dead man come
to life!"
“Allay thy concern,” said Rabbi
Johanan ben Zakkai. “I am not
dead, but I have taken this means
of getting out of Judea that I
might communicate with your
commanding general. I am Rab
bi Johanan ben Zakkai. Please
tell your commander that I re
quest an audience.”
"Yes, I have heard of thee,"
said the Roman General. "I must
admit that you have not been one
of the war fanatics, and for that
I will be disposed to grant any
request of yours, if it be reason
able."
Rabbi Johanan bemZakkai said
that he had come merely to ask
if he might start a school in
Jabneh.
The Roman general stared at
him. "Did you say you want to
start a school?"
“Yes, your excellency.”
"Well. I can't see any objections
to that," said the Roman com
mander.
Rabbi Johanan soon obtained a
parchment from the Roman com
mander instructing his soldiers
not to interfere in any way with
the school plans of Rabbi Johan
an. As soon as he was out of
sight, the general said to his aide,
“What a joke that is. That’s a
geek for you. I thought he would
ask for some lucrative post, may
be to let him rule a province in
Judea. But all he wants is to
start a school. What a laugh.”
But it was this school which
Rabbi Johanan ben Zakkai found
ed, which saved the Jewish peo
ple. It kept alive the Torah as a
flag when the Jewish nationality’
had been destroyed. It is a long
chain between Rabbi Johanan
ben Zakkai at Jabneh to modern
Israel, but without Jabneh there
would not have been the revived
Israel. There would have been
no people of Israel.

Secret Israel-Jordan
Peace Talks Renewed
JERUSALEM, (JTA) Direct

Arab countries into a permanent
peace.
