    …[Franklin D.] Roosevelt was stubbornly pro-Zionist,
    and had a difficult time with [King] Ibn Saud when he
    tried to persuade the king to accept 10,000 more Jews
    in Palestine.

    The king responded emphatically in words that Roosevelt
    would not repeat when he talked to reporters on the

    [King] Ibn Saud retorted that the Jews should return
    to live in the countries from which they had been driven.

    * The Quincy was a war ship.
