Waller, head of the Extra-Mural Department of Manchester University.55 Six refugees, described in the QRC’s minutes as ‘Czechs’, but in fact German political exiles brought to London from Prague by the Czech Trust Fund, arrived at the Guildhouse on 19 December 1938.56 This also marked the beginning of the QRC’s contacts with the Manchester branch of the National Council of Women (NCW), which since November had begun to interest itself in ‘Czech’ refugees

The ‘defending democracy’ in Israel – a framework of analysis

parties listed as constitutionally hostile. Although these steps in most cases receive constitutional endorsement and judiciary review, criticism has been aimed chiefly at the fact that employing undercover police against citizens may cause grave harm to the same liberties purportedly upheld by the democracy.

At Jerusalem he postured as a pilgrim and patron of Christian ecumenism in the Holy Land while parading into the city on his white horse as some latter-day holy warrior. At Damascus, by contrast, he laid a bronze wreath on the tomb of Saladin, von Sybel’s ‘born ruler’, bearing the legend ‘from one great emperor to another’.22 It is hard to see that any of these roles endeared him to his Turkish hosts.
