Many people believe that Einstein was in favor of the Zionist state and was a strong supporter in its creation.  These beliefs are far from the truth.  Please read the quote below; it will give you a deeper and more detailed understanding of Einstein's viewpoint on Israel.

 "I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. …the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power…. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain – especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks…" ~  Einstein speech in New York, 1938
