No "Swiss", you have it backwards. WWII and the Holocaust DELAYED Israel's independence. In fact, had the Arabs of pre-state Israel not been so hostile, and intransigent as supported by certain elements of the British government, the state of Israel would have been declared early enough,or at minimum, lifting immigration quotas (demanded by Arabs and enforced by the appeasing British) to have provided a place of refuge for Jews fleeing the Holocaust. Arab intransigence and Nazi sympathies thus cost un-told numbers of Jewish lives, as did their leader,the Grand Mufiti Al-Hussieni's lobbying the Nazis to slaughter more Jews etc. No, "Swiss", the Arabs of pre-state Israel were as complicit in causing the deaths of as many Jews as they could manage at the time.
