Official British Policy Towards Israel sign now

We the undersigned, protest for a change in official British policy regarding the nation of Israel; specifically, we request an official British apology to Israel for our various acts of mistreatment against holocaust survivors between 1939-1949 and the state today. We also request for the Queen, as our representative internationally, to embark on her first official Royal Visit to Israel.

Britain was mandated by, no less than the League of Nations from the foundation of the Balfour Declaration, to provide a homeland for the Jewish people. We promised to prepare Palestine for the rebirth of Israel and make a homeland ready with what is now Israel, the Palestinian territories and Jordan. However, due to Arab pressure (mainly in relation to oil, wealth and greed), we turned against the Jews and broke our promise to them, reducing the size of the land we distributed, to the appallingly small tract of land Israel has today. Shockingly, we are at pains to reduce even further the land we promised, so it is a mere 17% of what we started out with.

We also protest that we disgracefully during the holocaust itselflimited the number of Jews who could return to then Palestine toonly 152000 a year with British boats turning back some ships of Jewishrefugees during and after the holocaust at the time when theydesperately needed our help. Some historians estimate we could have saved up to 1million Jewish lives! Indeed we set up our own (internment concentration) camps for them in Cyprus and Mauritius. Our failure to protect the Jewishpeople from the Hebron Massacre and Hadassah convoy massacre was verystriking!
We also protest, as one specific (though certainly not isolated example) act of cruelty towards the Holocaust survivors, regarding the SS Exodus in 1947. Commandeering the ship by force and forcing the holocaust survivors away from then Palestine, back to a British Concentration Camp in Germany, was wrong, cruel and unjust in the opinion of the undersigned.

The policy of Arab appeasement and support of the Arab efforts during the war of 1948-1949 (notably Transjordan and Egypt), has continued in many ways through ensuing decades and we protest against the harming of British-Israeli diplomatic ties, in order to preserve British-Arab ties. We protest against the anti-Israel bias in the media and political rhetoric, which we feel is based largely on the threat of oil and investment reduction, rather than on conviction and facts.

Finally, we the undersigned protest the absence of an official Royal Visit to Israel, despite numerous visits to other nations in the region. As our Head of State and Representative, we call upon the Queen and the Royal Family to take up the numerous kind invites and offers made by the State of Israel, and to visit officially.
