Dr. Albert Einstein, Prof. Sidney Hook and nineteen other scholars and teachers joined yesterday in a public statement denouncing the Freedom party of Israel led by Menachem Begin, who is now visiting in the United States, as one that until recently "openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state."

At the same time Nahum Guttman, a spokesman for the American Trade Union Council for Histadrut, announced that Philip Murray, president of the Congress of Industrial Organizations, had informed the council that he had not authorized the use of his name as a member of the reception committee of 1,000 for Mr. Begin.

In the statement signed by Drs. Einstein, Hook and others, Mr. Begin and his followers were denounced as terrorists who "exacted a heavy tribute" from the population, and whose goal was a "leader state."

"Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultra-nationalism, religious mysticism and racial superiority," the statement asserted. "Like other Fascist parties, they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of the free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model."

Mr. Begin chided the "creator of the famous theory of relativity," for interfering in a political affair about which the speaker said the "professor" knew too little. Without mentioning Prof. Albert Einstein by name, the underground leader added, "I daresay I understand more in mathematics than the old venerated professor understands politics."


At one point, a woman rose in the balcony and shouted, "You killed my boy!" She was taken from the hall immediately. An attendance of 2,760 persons left only standing room in the auditorium.
