NB that some of the Jews who suffered in Germany at the hands of bad guys were not only German, but hard-core German patriots and/or military veterans. They would have been dismayed at the suggestion of Germany being carved up.

I once saw an exhibition of machine tools, and there was one old (pre-War? There was no date) Israeli lathe that had a manufacturer's plaque that said "Rishon Lezion, Palestine" in English, parallel to "Rishon Lezion, Israel" in Hebrew script. No Arabic.

The British also oversaw the Partition of India (legally? Illegally?), and we all know how well that worked out.
