From The Fraternal Visitor Christadelphian Magazine (1936):
In view of pressure in Europe it seems to-day more than ever necessary to encourage Jewish immigration into Palestine. In Germany they are a persecuted an a fugitive people realising the bitterness of the prophecy, “I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them.”
Decisive action by Britain in Palestine is however dictated by wider considerations than the protection of the Jews. Events in Spain may prove that the future administration of that country will be less friendly to Britain. That fact and our weakened control in Egypt increase enormously the political and military value of Palestine.

Persecution of Jews in Germany led to increased immigration in Palestine, and precipitated the violent opposition of the Arabs. - The Fraternal Visitor, December 1936
