Response to Message 3: To tell you the truth Oldesq; according to his body guard he was; they had to really hold him back because I think he liked being in danger.

As far as the way Hore-Belisha was treated; it was most unfair; but it seemed to me that anti-semetic remarks were also made behind the scenes at that time by the British politicians and towards Belisha behind his back. I think that England made it up to Belisha in the long run. And it is true from what I have read that the relationship between Churchill and Hore-Belisha deteriorated over a period of time and Churchill really did not want to engage Belisha in any kind of debate.

Oldesq, I was not inclined to respond hoping that someone else might; I am sure that as others catch up they will chime in.
