What Ken Livingston Has Said: (The History)
Now the Labour party and the Media want to drag Jews into the spotlight again, and Mr Livingston simply quoted the history books they want to re-write. Israel, as it is now was British territory. The Jews know their own history. So why try to lie to them? Malcolm MacDonald was the son of Labour P.M. James Ramsay MacDonald. Jews are perfect, because God has refined them to perfection.
In 1939, MacDonald oversaw and introduced the so-called MacDonald White Paper which aimed at the creation of a unified state, with controls on Jewish immigration. The White Paper argued that with over 450,000 Jews having now settled in the mandate, the Balfour Declaration had now been met and the paper opposed an independent Jewish state. The League of Nations commission held that the White Paper was in conflict with the terms of the Mandate as put forth in the past. The outbreak of the Second World War suspended any further deliberations. It has been suggested that MacDonald and Chamberlain took this course of action in order to ensure that the situation in Palestine did not develop into a situation similar to that of Ireland where two evenly matched communities engaged in bitter ethnic conflict. With antisemitism rampant in Europe, MacDonald sought to find new settlements, in vain. The White Paper was bitterly opposed by the Jews in Palestine, as well as by many supporting the National Government in Britain. When it was voted on in Parliament many Government supporters abstained or voted against the proposals, including some Cabinet Ministers as well as Winston Churchill. The objections to the ‘white paper’ were especially raised following the plight of European Jews under Nazi regimes in Germany and Austria, who suffered greatly under the Nazi oppression, but did not have other available goals of immigration, as most states at this point (including the US and Canada), did not accept Jewish refugees. In a UK Parliamentary debate, Lloyd George called the White Paper an act of perfidy while Winston Churchill voted against the government. In a leader the Manchester Guardian called it “a death sentence on tens of thousands of Central European Jews” The Liberal MP James Rothschild stated during the parliamentary debate that “for the majority of the Jews who go to Palestine it is a question of migration or of physical extinction”.
