Zionist Boycott Campaigns

FO 371/68650

In early June of 1948, after Britain had abdicated rule and effectively evacuated Palestine, a boycott campaign against Britain was launched in the US by the ‘Sons of Liberty Boycott Committee’, which named itself after a group from the American Revolution.

Its full-page New York ad denounced Britain’s (allegedly ongoing) “invasion of Israel”. All good Americans, it said, will join the boycott of Britain, so that when London sees the resulting “red ink”, this “nation of merchants and bookkeepers” (the categorisation strangely one of Jewish stereotypes) will be made to stop “destroying Israel”.
