Quotation from Chaim Weizmann “Should Palestine fall within the British sphere of influence ... we could have … a million Jews” — Nov. 12 1914
In a letter to C.S. Scott, publisher of the Manchester Guardian.
- Weizmann, Chaim (1874-1952) ( 21 quotations )
" We can reasonably say that should Palestine fall within the British sphere of influence, and should Britain encourage Jewish settlement there, as a British dependency, we could have in twenty to thirty years a million Jews out there, perhaps more; they would develop the country, bring back civilization to it and form a very effective guard for the Suez Canal.
