April 22, 1853 Association for Promoting Jewish Settlement in Palestine

George GawlerColonel George Gawler’s lecture in the English Midlands town of Derby regarding the Association for Promoting Jewish Settlement in Palestine.

“Divine Providence has placed Syria and Egypt in the very gap between England and the most important regions of her colonial and foreign trade. India, China, the Indian Archipelago, and Australia ― England and Syria stand in intimate connection. A foreign hostile power, mighty in either, would soon endanger British trade and communications through the other. Hence the loud providential call upon her to exert herself energetically for the amelioration of the condition of both these provinces. Egypt has improved greatly by British influence, and it is now for England to set her hand to the renovation of Syria through the only people whose energies will be extensively and permanently in the work ― the real children of the soil, the sons of Israel.”
