Bobby Kennedy on Israel
by: Schvach Yid

Thanks to I*Consult at: http://lennybendavid.com/2008/06/on-bobby-kennedys-40th-yahrzeit.html; chaptem read.

Did you know RFK visited the Yishuv in March 1948, and reported: "The Jews point with pride to the fact that over 500,000 Arabs, in the 12 years between 1932-1944, came into Palestine to take advantage of living conditions existing in no other Arab state...". Of course, RFK made the error of designating 'Palestine' an Arab state.

And the Arabs assert it’s theirs, and that we Yiddin are the intruders.

When RFK visited the region, there was no "Israel." The name came into official usage only later when Ben-Gurion proclaimed the state. Jews of the yishuv were known then as "Palestinian Jews."
