Incidentally, there was nothing altruistic about it. Lord Balfour was a well known anti semite. It was purely done out of expedience -- a quid pro quo. The Zionists in the US used their considerable influence here to change the US policy of neutrality. The US media mounted the first Madison Avenue style propaganda campaign to drum up war fever. Americans were strongly opposed to US involvement -- but the propaganda machinery played on people's fears and emotions -- and it prevailed. The media portrayed Germans as Huns and the polls shifted in favor of war.
TE Lawrence was so dismayed by the betrayal of the Arabs at Versailles that afterward he refused a commission in the Royal AF --
The Germans also correctly understood the Versailles conference as a betrayal -- and this no doubt explains the hostility inside Germany for German Jews. Most Germans believed that the rich Jews of Germany had sold out the nation. Up until this time, German Jews were very well off -- very successful and fully integrated into German society. There was little anti semitism before these developments.
As for Germany winning the war -- yeah, check it out. The US entered the war late. The Germans whipped the Brits before we came in.
You write utter nonsense, Gaffney, but nice try at deflecting away from your ignorance.
Now get back to telling us all about this bull****:
Germany had won the war and offered England very generous terms
When did this happen and what were the 'generous terms' offered??
If you don't know, then admit you pull it out of your a$$, as usual, and move on.
