25. That's not what they are being criticized for!
Of course, if that were the limit of their actions, that would be fine.

But they *offered to collaborate with the Nazis, to help them win the war, because they thought that if they did it would make the establishment of a Jewish state more likely than if the British won*.

So yes, I think they're exactly comparable to the mufti, or any other terrorist group of Nazi collaborators or would-be collaborators. The only difference is that his offer was accepted and their's wasn't.
