If Palestine would have the only place on earth where European Jews could have found refuge from the Nazis, Avineri accusation would have been correct. But as Avineri himself well knows, it was the Jewish Agency leadership under David Ben-Gurion the opposed fiercly what it called the separation between the rescue efforts from the Jewish emigration to Palestine. Avineri knows well that Ben-Gurion considered such separation as a deadly blow to the Zionist project and therefore there are concrete proofs that as in the Evian Conference of 1938, Ben-Gurion?s delegates like Golda Meir fought against finding alternative refuge. S.B. Beit-Tzvi argues convincingly that there were alternatives.
