Sir Isaac Isaacs (1855–1948), an Australian judge and politician, was the ninth Governor General of Australia and the first born in Australia to occupy that post. He was strongly opposed to Zionism (see Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Isaacs ; also see Max Gordon, “Sir Isaac Isaacs”, Heinemann, Adelaide, 1963).
Sir Isaac Isaacs was concerned for the rights of Indigenous Palestinians and supported the British White Paper of 1939 restricting Jewish immigration to the Palestine Mandate and was accordingly vilified by local Australian Zionists, notwithstanding his great eminence.
The Balfour Declaration is reproduced here for the context (my emphasis added; see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_Declaration_of_1917 ).
Sir Isaac Isaacs, 1946: “The honour of Jews throughout the world demands the renunciation of political Zionism." .
Sir Isaac Isaacs: "the Zionist movement as a whole...now places its own unwarranted
interpretation on the Balfour Declaration, and makes demands that are
arousing the antagonism of the Moslem world of nearly 400 millions,
thereby menacing the safety of our Empire, endangering world peace and
imperiling some of the most sacred associations of the Jewish,
Christian, and Moslem faiths. Besides their inherent injustice to others
these demands would, I believe, seriously and detrimentally affect the
general position of Jews throughout the world." .
