Rare Einstein Letter Thanking American Who Helped Jews Escape Holocaust Emerges In Chicago

A rare letter written by Albert Einstein in 1939 as a ‘thank you’ to a man who helped Jews to escape from Nazi Germany has emerged in Chicago. The document is one of just three such letters known to historians.

The recipient of the letter was a New York financier called David Finck who sponsored the journeys of a number of people from the Jewish community as they fled to the U.S. from Germany.

Einstein and Finck never met, but the great physicist became aware of the banker through his charitable deeds. “May I offer my sincere congratulations to you on the splendid work you have undertaken on behalf of the refugees,” Einstein wrote in the letter. Read more at NEWSWEEK.

AJC: The PA Pays Its People a Lifetime Salary for Committing Terrorist Attacks on Israelis

The American Jewish Committee (AJC) strongly condemned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s speech before the UN Security Council, in which he called for an ‘international conference” by the middle of this year to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In his remarks, Mr. Abbas called for recognition of a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders “in line with international law and the relevant resolutions.” He also blamed Israel for allegedly shutting the door to a two-state peace agreement and slammed the U.S. for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Kuwait, which serves this month as president the Security Council, had invited Abbas to address the UN body.
“Instead of traveling a short distance from Ramallah to Jerusalem to negotiate directly with Israel, Abbas chose yet again to come to UN headquarters in New York to ostensibly advance peace by internationalizing the conflict,” said AJC CEO David Harris. “Trying to sideline the U.S. from the peace process is futile and raises genuine questions about the Palestinian leader’s own commitment to peace. The U.S. has long been the one country critical for Arab-Israeli efforts.”
Indeed, after Abbas spoke U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley called on him to work with Washington toward a negotiated resolution of the conflict. “The choice is yours, Mister President,” said Haley to Abbas.
Harris noted that, in recognizing Jerusalem in December as Israel’s capital, the American administration had explicitly left open the possibility of also recognizing the city as the capital of a Palestinian state, within the context of a comprehensive peace agreement. AJC has long supported the search for an enduring two-state accord with the Palestinians.
Harris also dismissed as “off the wall” Abbas’s attempt to delegitimize Zionism by asserting that the Palestinians descend from “Canaanites who lived on the land of Palestine 5,000 years ago.”  He added: “Is there no limit to his capacity to rewrite history, just as he did in his doctoral dissertation in Moscow on Holocaust inventions?”
And, Harris expressed amazement at Abbas’s claim that he is committed to non-violence. “The PA, in fact, pays its people a lifetime salary for committing terrorist attacks on Israelis,” said Harris. “To call that non-violence is straight out of George Orwell’s 1984.”
