      IN N.Y., SPARKS FLY OVER ISRAEL CRITICISM
      By Michael Powell

      NEW YORK -- Two major American Jewish organizations
      helped block a prominent New York University historian
      from speaking at the Polish consulate here last week,
      saying the academic was too critical of Israel and
      American Jewry.

      Arthur Koestler:

      “When a person identifies himself with a group his
      critical faculties are diminished and his passions
      enhanced by a kind of emotive resonance. The
      individual is not a killer, the group is, and by
      identifying with it, the individual becomes one. This
      is the infernal dialect reflected in man's history."

      Politics, as a practise, whatever its professions, has
      always been the systematic organization of hatreds..
