    Britain should have allowed more immigrants before the war, I agree. But once the war rolled, the problem was not getting into Palestine, which many, including Begin, did via the Soviet Union, the problem was getting out of Nazi-occupied Europe. And I may have been wrong about Begin being in Lehi but he was certainly in Irgun and he certainly fought the British, thus in effect delaying the liberation of Europe, though not materially so. But fighting Britain from '42 is to be counted with "the other side." And let me tell you something, my friend: if Britain hadn't vowed itself to "go on to the end" or end up "choking on his own blood" there wouldn't be a Jew left in the world. Not one. Only goose-stepping morons. So don't slander Britain by comparing it to Civilization's mortal enemies. You owe your life to it. As does Israel.
