Quotation from Chaim Weizmann “Palestine is not Rhodesia and that 600,000 Arabs live there” — Aug. 1925

In a speech without future at the 14th Zionist World Congress in Vienna, he said.

Author : Thematics :
" Palestine must be built up without violating the legitimate interests of the Arabs not a hair on their heads shall be touched. The Zionist Congress must not confine itself to platonic formulae. It has to learn the truth that Palestine is not Rhodesia and that 600,000 Arabs live there, who before the sense of justice of the world have exactly the same right to their homes in Palestine as we have to our National Home.
