Der yidisher kemfer

NYU Press

This chapter contains an excerpt of the statement of principles of the socialist-Zionist weekly, Der yidisher kemfer. It defines the “Jewish Militant” as a figure that can, with much hardship, liberate the Jew from their dual suffering as both a Jew and a human being. The motto of all militants is, “In struggle shall your freedom be achieved!” The Jewish militant must therefore work for their own freedom, and in so doing break down divides and place all of humanity on equal footing, regardless of race, sex, and nationality. But most of all, this chapter stresses, the Jewish militant is neither a Zionistic socialist nor a socialistic Zionist—instead, they must be a socialist internationalist.
