The Knesset should declare British General Glubb a war criminal for the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1948

On December 14, 2015 breakingisraelnews.com reported that “An IDF reserve officer who fought in 2014’s Operation Protective Edge was briefly detained recently in England on allegations that he was a war criminal…”
On November 2015 unitedwithisrael.org reported that “In 1967 British General Glubb explained the reason for the Balfour Declaration in an address he gave in the Middle East Institute in Washington (“The Arab-Israeli Impass” (Khadduri, 1968)): “In 1917 Russia made peace with Germany and Austria-Hungary, and in autum of 1917 Britain and France realized that in the spring of 1918 all the Central Powers would turn on them. And this was the absolute crisis of the War…so in the Autumn of 1917 they decided something had to be done to get the US into the war before they were exhausted. And from the documents that we now have available we see that it was thought that the Balfour Declaration would bring the US into the war…”
The British issued the Balfour Declaration because they needed American Support in WWI, they used American support for Israel to save themselves during WWI and after they won the war they betrayed Israel (and America). In 1948 when the British Mandate of Palestine ended and the Jewish State of Israel was created, Iraq, Jordan and Egypt (all puppet Kingdoms from the UK) attacked the newborn Jewish State. Most of the officers of the Jordanian Arab Legion were British:
Command (under British General John Bagot Glubb),
Divisional Headquarters (under Brigadier Lash), Artillery Batteries/troops (under Lt-Col Hearst),
1st Brigade (under Col. Goldie),
1st Regiment (under Lt-Col. Blackden),
3rd Regiment (under Lt-Col Newman),
3rd Brigade (under Col. Ashton),
2nd Regiment (under Maj. Slade)
(Source: Laffin (1982a), Lunt (1999), Collins & Lapierre (1972).
In 1948 General Glubb lead the Jordanian Arab Legion commanded mostly by British Officers to expel all the Jews from Hebron, East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Not only they did ethnic cleansing but they destroyed dozens of ancient synagogues and 60,000 Ancient Jewish Tombstones in the Sacred Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives to try to erase all evidence of Jewish History in the West Bank. In 1956, after his service in Jordan, the criminal General Glubb, responsible for ethnic cleansing of Jews, was knighted by the Queen. General Glubb was appointed Knight Commander of The Order of Bath by Queen Elizabeth.
Jews returned to east Jerusalem in 1967 after Israel won a defensive war against Egypt, Syria and Jordan. The 1967 war ended almost 20 years of illegal Jordanian occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank and allowed Jews to return home. (Jewish cities in Judea and Samaria should be called Liberated Jewish Cities instead of “Settlements” since they are communities liberated by the Jewish people from Arab invaders not colonial outposts taken from native residents.)
The Palestinians did not demand to create a State in the West Bank (judea and Samaria) while it was controlled by Jordan from 1948 till 1967. They only started demanding a Palestinian State there after Jordan lost it to Israel. The same way, if all of Israel was currently being controlled by Jordan the Palestinians would not care to create a State of Palestine. The Palestinians’ main goal is not to create a Palestinian State, it is to destroy Israel, it bothers them that it is under Jewish and not under Arab rule, their goal is not to create a Palestinian State but to re-establish Muslim rule.
During the Arab-Israeli wars of 1948 and 1967, Islamic Armies tried to destroy Israel but failed. Because they lost in the battle field they changed their strategy of direct military confrontation and started falsely posing as the under dog, victims of Jewish aggression to gain the sympathy of the World Powers. In reality the Palestinian are not weak, they are strong because they are part of something much bigger, the Palestinians are an integral part of the Arab Nations, a spear-head inside Israel of the dozens Islamic States that surround Israel and want its destruction…”
Since the British are now accusing Israeli Officers of War Crimes, the Knesset should declar British General Glubb a War Criminal for leading the Jordanian Arab Legion to expel all the Jews from Hebron, East Jerusalem and the West Bank and trying to erase all evidence of Jewish History in the West Bank destroying dozens of ancient synagogues and 60,000 Ancient Jewish Tombstones in the Sacred Ancient Jewish Cemetery of Mount of Olives.
In 1956, after his service in Jordan, the criminal General Glubb, responsible for ethnic cleansing of Jews, was knighted by the Queen. The Knesset should demand that Glubb’s Knighthood be revoked.
