By deniers you mean scientist who are not Jewish...according to
Einstein's thinking.
Einstein has never said anything of the sort. Religion or descent simply
usually does not figure in science, and it certainly did not with Einstein.

""Why were men of science opposed
to your theory when you first made it
known ?"
"No men of science," he replied, em
phasizing the last'word, "were against
the theory."
"But there was some opposition?"
"Yes," was the quiet reply, "but that
was purely political. Even the physi
cists who opposed my theory did so for
political reasons?in my opinion, o'
course."
"What do you mean when you say
the opposition was political?"
"Anti-Semitism," was the scientist's
answer. "Because I am a Jew." ""
