Germany despite his acquired citizenship. As a Zionist he stood always in the most radical wing and found the greatest opposition in his own camp. A very clever man, a fascinating speaker and a brilliant debater, he frequently wins momentary success. But he is too often thoughtless, in a certain sense, and too radically disposed, to assume such a responsible leadership. I am somewhat curious to know how the editorial of the next issue of the Juedische Rundschau will deal with him!

Dr. S. Margoshes, the last of the triumvirate, is not known to me at all. But after all that I have heard and read about him, he seems to be a typical Yiddish reporter who, in trying to make his newspaper attractive, puts himself into the center of the most vital events of Jewish life.

These three men do not understand statecraft. They lack every requirement which real statesmen should possess. It is high time that their disastrous activities should be put to an end, and that they should be substituted by men who see the situation logically and are masters of the things which they want to represent.

First of all, honesty is necessary. What else, please God, must still happen to the Jews before Dr. Wise will realize that it can’t go on any further as it has been?
