    –-> In 1937, Winston Churchill said of the Palestinians, I quote, “I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place.” That set the trend for the Israeli State’s attitude towards the Palestinians. In 1969, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir said, “Palestinians do not exist.”

    Finalement Churchill et Hitler n’étaient pas si loin l’un de l’autre à la différence que l’homme d’état savait ce que c’était de gouverner un empire mondial alors que le peintre autrichien rêvait d’en « construire » un. Son antisemitisme fanatique comme plein d’autres de ses particularités rendaient le mouvement politique nazi incmpatible avec la domination internationale recherchée.

    Racial views of Winston Churchill

    Some academics, such as Kehinde Andrews, go so far as to suggest Churchill was “the perfect embodiment of white supremacy”, while others like historian Andrew Roberts, say that Churchill could certainly be accused of paternalism, but not race-hatred.
