Colin Shindler has written a third response to my essay on the Balfour Declaration. “If Sokolow was significant, why not Jabotinsky as well? Why omit Jabotinsky?” On the principle that “success has many fathers” (but failure is an orphan), why indeed? It’s a claim that’s sometimes been made by Jabotinsky’s followers (e.g., Joseph Schechtman in the first volume of his Jabotinsky biography). But at the time (as Shindler admits), Jabotinsky gave all the credit to Weizmann alone.
