Quotation from Chaim Weizmann “Balfour, Churchill ... believed in the Bible ... we Zionists represented a great tradition” — Jan. 1 1970

Chaim Weizmann, the main Zionist lobbyist in Great Britain during the First World War, recalls, in connection with a polemic against anti-Zionist Jews, that the English Protestant leaders sympathize with the myth of the jewish "return".

Author : Thematics :

men like Balfour, Churchill, Lloyd George, were deeply religious, and believed in the Bible, that to them the return of the Jewish people to Palestine was a reality, so that we Zionists represented to them a great tradition for which they had enormous respect.
