I think that you might have misread my comment.
Nowhere did I state that the British were aligned with the Jews.
Or the converse as you have stated.
I explicity commented on the fact that the land was TAKEN from the Palestinians, or Arabs if you wish who were under the control of the Ottoman
Turks,and given to the ZIONIST JEWS.
All done by the British Empire as a gift to Barron Rothschild.
Thus the Balfour Declaration.
I would quote the actual declaration for you but I feel confident that you are familiar with it.
(BTW...Several individuals who practice Judaism do not believe that the Jews have a claim to the land ascirbed to them by the Hebrew Bible. According
to the prophecies of Judaism, the Jews cannot enter into the holy land until the return of their messiah. The messiah who will unite the original
twelve tribes, ten of which are now unknown due to Assyrian invaders)
The only reason that the British set up Arab states is because the original mandate in question explicitly stated that the creation of a Jewish state
was in no way to infringe upon the rights of the indigenous people of the region.
That would be the Arabs.
The same Arabs who now occupy the Gaza Strip.
The same Gaza strip that is now being blockaded by Israel.
With citizens being denied health care.
With children being held hostage in a land with NO HEALTH CARE.
And the same children dying because of....
a LACK OF HEALTH CARE.
And guess who is denying this?
The Zionists who were given the land by the British.
The same land that the British took as a spoil of war that was already occupied by Arabs.
All of these "Arab states" that the British supposedly "set up" (your words not mine) were already Arab.
The only aspect of these states that the British "set up" was the establishment of a government under British influence.
These Arabs were already on the land. They had been there for centuries.
The only claim that the Zionists have to the ARAB land is based on the Bible.
A book written by men, but claimed to be the holy word of God.
Well the Qu'ran is also written by men and claimed to be the holy word of God.
Which one is correct?
The British took the land as a spoil of war. Land that did not belong to the them.
Now Zionists have been given the same land, land that does not belong to them.
And the same Zionists who contiually play the pity card for their previous sufferings ("the" holocaust, etc...) have assumed the role of empirical
invaders inflicting the same damage upon the Palestinians as is claimed to have been inflicted upon them.
