The genocide committed against the Palestinian people by Israel is still ongoing. Citizens of the world still haven’t stopped voicing their support from day to day.
However, did you know that Albert Einstein was one of the figures who criticized Israel’s establishment on Palestinian land? He did this since May 1948. A month before the founding of Israel by David ben-Gurion on April 10 1948, Einstein had criticized this decision.
This was discovered through a letter sent by the physicist to Shepard Rifkin, Executive Director of American Friends of the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel. What is the content of the letter like?
The Establishment of Israel Brings Disaster in Palestine

The letter written by the man who died in 1955 was quite short, only 50 words.

On that basis, throughout his life he did not want to be associated with the misleading people and criminals behind the founding of Israel.
Not just the letter. After 7 months later, Einstein was still firm in his beliefs. He and 29 well-known US figures sent an open letter to The New York Times, which was then published on December 4 1948 entitled “New Palestine Party: Visit of Menachem Begin and Aims of Political Movement Discussed”.
