From Israel to Egypt and back

Dr Ginosar has posted an account of his family's trip from the Israel (then part of the Ottoman Empire) to Egypt in the 1800's. He recalls how his father returned to Israel (now part of the British Mandate) in 1922 (aged 22). He recalls how his father loved Israel immensely, and how this love motivated his brother Pinhas, and him, to join the Lechi underground to try to liberate Israel from the duplicitous British occupation. He notes how Israel was indeed liberated andhwo the British have not forgiven Israel to this day.

A long but very interesting read!
