Pal in Diaspora, I read somewhere where Lord Baden Powell organized the Boy Scouts as a paramilitary group to prepare the Young Men of England for the war effort. That was in the early decades of the twentieth century. Helping little old ladies cross the street was the last of the movement's concern. For the record Kadhaffi in Lybia, and other Arab nations pull the same shtick, and, their oppositon to the State of Israel is integral to that movement's philosophy. To believe in the right of the Jewish People in the Land of Israel, at its best, does not deny the right of Arabs to their homelands, but Arab nationalism doesn't accept any Jewish sovereignty at all, in any part of the world. That the principal insists on holding to "his principles", forgetting the difference between the two movements is the problem.
