They have taken their destiny in their own hands and fought for their rights ... We may regret that we have to use methods which are repulsive and stupid to us, methods of which the human race has not yet been able to free itself.

Yet, despite the conflict, Albert Einstein's commitment to Zionism and to peace remained life-long convictions. He was an instinctive pacifist who firmly believed that only through world government could war finally be eliminated. And he saw the rebirth of Israel as "the embodiment of the re- awakening composite spirit of the whole Jewish nation."
