of the Uganda proposition of. the

the hostile attitude of-'the Russian
government toward Zionism, of the.
impending revolution in the domin­

view of the indifference, yea, direct
opposition, to their scheme on the
part of nine-tenths of the well-to-do
Israelites of Western Europe and
America?
Goethe says somewhere that there
are times when "no righteous man
has the right to keep silence " The
international situation of the Jewish
people is nowadays such as not to
permit any.Jewish scholar, profes­

moral responsibility in the great
war of deliverance'in behalf of his
six million downtrodden brethren.
