Written in 1948 it cautions that any catastrophe befalling the fledgling nation of Israel will come from the actions of either its creators (Britain) or its citizens. Coincidentally the letter was written the morning after the Israelis carried out an unprovoked massacre of Palestinian civilians in the village of Deir Yassin. If the headlines from 1948 (the Deir Yassin massacre) to the present day (continued illegal settlements by Netanyahu encroaching on the lands of the Palestinians) are any measure of a man’s intellect… One must label Einstein a genius. Israel is indeed its own worst enemy, and here is the prescient pronouncement of it signed by a man of brilliance.
