The author mentions the policy of colonial Britain, who after all ruled Palestine and at the same time mentions the brutal repression of an Arab revolt against British rule? And then assumes that Arabs had any control over the British at all. The British could have cared less what the Arabs desired, they wanted to win the war and did whatever they thought would further that aim.It is hardly surprising that Arabs living in Palestine opposed immigration of others whose stated aim was to take control of Palestine. Blame the British, if anyone. And blame all the other countries in the world who turned their backs on the European Jews fleeing Europe. Arabs had no foreknowledge of the impending Holocaust, just as no one else did. This article makes no sense.
