Well Mr. Sword, I can tell why many people believe that the UK was anti-Semitic, but of course I can't prove that they indeed, were. You see, Mr. Sword, at the end of WW1, the League of Nations gave the UK authority to establish a homeland for the Jews and set aside the land of Israel, including the West Bank and Jordan as the homeland territory. However, while the UK monitored and controlled the immigration of Jews to Israel, they did nothing to control, monitor or record the inflow of Arabs. In fact the UK made it exceedingly difficult for Jews to immigrate to Israel by setting limits to the number of Jews allowed per month. In the meantime, no effort was made to document or control the flow of Arabs to Israel. Thanks to the UK, and contrary to the decree of the League of Nations, less than one tenth of the land originally set aside for the Jews became Israel. Now, does this prove that the UK was anti-Semitic; I don't know. Why don't you call it?

Have a nice day,

Infidel
