Basic Tenets Emphasized
At Parliament Roundtable
By Gretchen Grondahl
Assertion of justice and brother
hood as basic tenets common to
the faiths of Islam and Judaism
emerged in a Parliament of World
Religion round table on "The Eth
ical Teachings of Judaism and Is
lam" at 10 a m. Wednesday.
Rabbi Julius Nodel, Portland
Jewish leader, and Bashir Ahmad
Minto, president of the American
Moslem society, outlined their re
ligious principles and answered
questions of an overflow audience
in the Dads' lounge. Connecting j
doors between the lounge and the ,
ballroom had to be opened to ac
commodate the crowd.
Rabbi Nodel explained that all j
(he ethical teaching of Judaism j
sterns from the one dogma of the
faith: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord
our God, the Lord is One.” Since
God is the father of all men, all
men are brothers in the teaching
of the Jews, he explained.
Judaism emphasizes the pursuit
of justice, because if there is no
justice there is r.o peace and no
love, he asserted.
“Thus the Jews have always
been able to be good citizens be
4, cause their teachings are to abide
the law.”
This World Important
"Judaism is a very this-worldly
religion," Kahbi Nodel stated. "To
us, this world is not a useless ves
tibule for the world to come, be
cause that makes life purposeless."
The object is to live the best life
possible to make the world better
for all.
The best way to sum up the
ethical teachings of Judaism. Rab
bi Nodel concluded, is to quote this
Scriptural passage: "What doth
I lie Lord require of thee, but to do
justly, and to love mercy, and to
walk humbly with thy God?" (Mi
dah VI, 8.)
Minto, speaking on the ethical
teachings of Islam, explained that
the ethics of his faith lie in the
word “Islam," which means "com
plete surrender to God."
“Your morals should be God's
morals," Minto asserted. If this is
the case, what are God’s attri
butes? The speaker dwelt, on two:
justice, emphasized by Moses, and
humility, emphasized by the teach
ings of Jesus.
Follow Justice, Humility
"Both of these attributes have
to be followed," Minto stated. He
illustrated his point by saying
that if vve are kept in slavery by
tyrants, we must fight for justice
and our rights, or the tyrants will
be able to do as they wish. But if
God gives us power, we must not
misuse it.
"If you find a man in the dust,
pick him up; but if a man throws
you down, revolt."
Midway in the program Rabbi
Node) and Minto engaged in a dis
cussion designed to clarify each
other's points.
Rabbi Nodel, commenting on
Minto's characterization of Juda
ism as a religion of law, pointed
out that Judaism also teaches
"The ancient Jewish law of 'an
eye for an eye and a tooth for a
tooth’ was actually created as a
restraint for more cruel practices,"
Rabbi Nodel explained, stating
that in ancient times it was com
mon to cut off an arm for the theft
of a piece of bread.
Not Spread by Sword
Minto, explaining that he had
not meant to give the impression
that Moses did not value mercy,
made an attack on the common
saying that Islam is spread by the
"This concept is historically
wrong,” Minto charged. "The Mos
lems are the only people who nevoi
exterminated any people simply

Fate of Judaism, Mohammedanisnk
Discussed by Parliament Speakers
Dangers Noted
By Rabbi Nodel
By Kitty Fraser
"The fate of Judaism in the mid
twentieth century will be the same
as the fate for all other religions,”
stated Rabbi Julius Josef Nodel
in his talk on Judaism in Wednes
day night's session of the Parlia
ment of World Religions.
Destroying forces which attack
Judaism will attack all other reli
gions, Nodel said, and the task of
all religions for peace is to see that
“in the name of the living God, no
basic human right is violated."
Pointing out that there 19 no
"best" religion, he said, "What our
religion does for us, other religions
do for you."
Emphasizing the common as
pects of the world's religions, he
spoke of the "universal religious
hunger" of man and said it was!
Fforovsky Delayed
The Very Rev. Doctor Geor
ges Florovsky, priest of the
Greek Orthodox church, who
j was scheduled to deliver three
j addresses at today's session of
! the Parliament of World Relig
j ions, wired parliament officials
i Wednesday that he will be nn
| able to attend.
j Florovsky’s plane was
j grounded in New York.
The Kev. Evan Williams of
i the Eugene Episcopal church.

and graduate student in phil

! this same spiritual hunger which
j leads the Jew to the synogogue.
the Moslem to the piosque and the
Christian to the church.
"The walls of the buildings di
vide, but this spiritual hunger
unites us,” he stated.
Nodel then posed the question
that if the world religions arc so
much the same, why could there
| not be a universal religion, one re
| ligion for all ?
In answering, he said first he be
j lieved in “universal religion, but
not uniform religion.” His reasons
why there could be no uniform re
ligion for the world were first that
elimination religious differences to
create harmony would be admit
ting defeat. The real trouble is
that humans transform these dif
ferences into antagonism, said the
rabbi, and ill will among people
would only find expression in some
other hatred.
Secondly, Nodel pointed out that
a uniform religion would be "mor
ally bad" and "practically impos
sible.” Citing instances where
jroups have tried to found relig
ions that they hoped would be uni
form, he related that those who
fried to find a universal religion
ended by founding a new religion.
' If a single religion was estab
lished on the ruins of all the old
faiths, people would still r.ot be
satisfied, Noclel inferred, because
there is no religious formula that
cap satisfy all men due to their
psychological differences.
Speaking for the Jew, Nodel
said he believes his religion to fce
the best, but he has no desire to
rob others of theirs. The conflicts
between religions are not with the
philosophies, he commented, but
with the failure of followers to live
their lives according to their

followers of Islam suffered under a
"foreign yoke” lor hundreds of
years. The Westerners depnve«fc«»
them of their land and made them
poverty stricken, ha said. Now
they are realizing a unity to th.ow
off that yoke.
"God has no chosen people ” he
said. "God does not love anybody,
but he loves justice and honesty.
He will reward you according to
your work.”
Minto told how the Moslems

they gave up struggling. Then the
