    The more you go on the more obvious it is you never studied history very much at all. Your posts do not reflect the history, merely your perversion of it. 600,000 is not 3-4 million(your absentia holocaust assumption). Much closer to a few hundred thousands. Then again Jewish virtual library says you exaggerate by over fifty thousand. Yes less than 550,000 in Israel in 1946. Must try harder Jordan. Why the lecture about economics and WW2. Is comprehension with you the same as arithmetic? Without the war which entailed the holocaust, Great Britain remained Great for another couple of decades at least which meant no Israel, effectively. I said that once already but you could not assimilate? "Without the intervening war AND all that it entailed " #104 Do you understand. No holocaust without WWII, they came as an inseparable package. It is facile in the extreme to imagine a war against the Nazis without a holocaust. This is another reminder to read before posting the same silly statements twice. "Most would be emigres from Europe wanted to go anywhere but Israel". #104 Without the war AND the inevitable holocaust GB would never have let them in to Israel in any case, in anything but the tiny numbers already proposed in the White Paper. Your assumptions are your fantasies. Learn to separate the two.
