The Zionist State of Israel

At the third Knessia Gedola (Agudah) in 1937 ,there was a fierce debate between the Gedolim
whether to accept the Peel Commission for partition of Palestine. The Polish  Gedolim
supported  Chalukah, thereby supporting establishing a Jewish state in part of Palestine.

The Litvishe & Hungarian Gedolim opposed Chalukas Ha’aretz and thereby were against the
establishment of a Jewish state. (by insisting, nothing but the whole, chances of this to happen
was nil)

R. M. Sternbuch Shlita (Teshuvo V’Hanhogos 2 : 140) writes he heard this from
R Y.B. Soloveichik  zt”l (Yerushalyim) and wrote it down  as he heard it.

R. Elchonon Wasserman &  R. Ahron Kotler  zt”l were very upset and were about to step out
of the Knessia & Agudah.  R.Chaim Ozer zt”l convinced them not to do so and to remain there.

The Brisker Rav zt”l was  very angry, for  even discussing  the issue. He held establishing a State
Is a “Gram Shefichos Damim.
 R.A. Kalmenowitz zt”l asked the Brisker Rav " why he was making such a big deal of it."
The British Government couldn’t care less what the  Rabonim at the Knessia  discuss and decide."

The Brisker Rav answered  him  “  We find in Gemoro that the Ribono Shel Olam runs his world
according to the Psak of the Rov (majority). At the Knessia there are Rov (majority)Gedolei Yisroel.
They are debating whether to accept part or to insist for the whole of Eretz Yisroel, but
they all agree for the establishment of a Jewish State. He therefore fears  the Ribono Shel Olam
will make it happen,  and a Jewish State will be established.
