DENA Aronberg surely cannot be serious that we should watch the film Exodus to get the American unbiased definitive perspective on the events in Palestine in the late 1940s.

To do so would beg the credibility of anyone's sanity. Hollywood may be tops for entertainment but, in my opinion, would struggle to reach three out of 10 for historical accuracy.

I reject her belief that a murderous campaign was launched by the British against the refugees fleeing Nazi persecution.

We fought against the Nazi tyranny with all the means at our disposal, and when victory was won the survivors of the concentration camps were among the beneficiaries.

The campaign I referred to was that waged by the Jewish militants in the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem and the abduction of two British army sergeants who the Jewish patriots hanged.

I find it hard to accept Dena Aronberg could make disparaging remarks about the Russians. She will be aware the Russians fought the Nazis from the snows outside Moscow right into Hitler's bunker in the heart of Berlin.

No nation suffered such catastrophic losses to rid Europe of the Nazi regime.

Not everything they did could be applauded and some of their acts could be viewed with abhorrence, but no nation is whiter than white and that applies to Britain and Israel as well. Although at the risk of being labelled biased I believe that Britain is less black than most
