Example text

But it is worth noting, that the particular issue around which, it is no exaggeration to say, all in the Yishuv were absolutely united was not so much independence as a matter of absolute and immediate priority as immigration. It was the issue of immigration too, that, for obvious reasons, had been continually stoking the fires of the triangular Jewish-Arab-British conflict as well. At all events, so far as the Jews of Palestine were concerned, the immense, steadily growing public pressure throughout the world of Jewry to ensure that those in dire need of escape from Europe be allowed to enter the country was seen as at once proof positive of the validity of the Zionist analysis of the desperate condition and absolute needs of the Jewish people and, at the same time, a matter which transcended Zionism altogether.

It is for all these reasons that parliamentary democracy not only came naturally to the Jews in the course of their transition from traditional to modern social forms; it was to all intents and purposes the sole form of government that, within a strictly Jewish context, was conceivably acceptable to them. What was lacking was that structure of overall, supra-communal leadership that they had not had since late Antiquity at least. Organizations founded for very strictly philanthropic purposes (the Paris-based Alliance Israelite Universelle, founded in 1860, for example) and such as functioned on an essentially orthodox and traditionalist religious basis (notably Agudat Israel, founded in 1912) constitute partial exceptions to this rule.

It might be added here, parenthetically, that no shadow of FROM 'STATE WITHIN A STATE' TO STATE 41 what is now termed the Holocaust is apparent in the High Commissioner's argument. He must have had some idea of what was going on in the European death camps. But it in no way affected his views. These hinged exclusively on what he judged would be best for Britain in the Middle East. And what worried MacMichael was that he thought the pressure to enter the country would be all but impossible to stem and that, at the same time, if it were acceded to, the impact on British interests, more specifically on British-Arab relations, would be dire.
