This chapter is a response to an article published by Ernest Mandel, the author of the previous chapter, regarding the Jewish Question. Mandel (referred to in this chapter as “Germain”) characterizes the suffering of the Jews as a symbol of the fate of humanity in general, particularly as victims of capitalism and imperialism. The chapter argues against this comparison and turns to another one of Germain's points—that despite the suffering they have endured in Europe, the Jews must not migrate to Palestine. This chapter once again provides a counterargument to that conviction and further emphasizes that recognizing the validity of Jewish national aspirations for survival is not a violation of Marxist principles.

Keywords:   Jewish Question, capitalism, imperialism, Europe, Palestine, Marxist Principles, Jewish national aspirations
