So Burg want's to reinvent the wheel. First he should suggest that the State reinter the bones of Dr. Judah Magnes, the first president of the Hebrew University who, together with Martin Buber, Henrietta Szold, Julius Simon, and a number of Arab Palestinian notables in the Mandate at the time to form the Ichud Party. Google it, you may find it interesting reading. The idea was proposed at the same time when B-G and the boys were at the Biltmore Hotel in NYC. Those of us who recall our Zionist history remember the decision to . . . yes to establish a Jewish State in the borders of British Mandatory Palestine/Land of Israel.. The Ichud party got trashed, and when Dr. Magnes went to the UN to propose his ideas he was told to "get lost". He died in 1949, and, unlike our other Zionist leaders, he remains abroad. Ah, then again, I recall his Zionism was based on the ideas of Ahad HaAm, so he doesn't count.
