The Amazing Connection Between Henry Flagler’s Yacht and the Founding of the State of Israel @ Tropic Cinema | Key West | Florida | United States

Presented by John Blades.

 

John Blades, former Executive Director of the Flagler Museum, will explain how without the help of a Banana King, the partitioning of Palestine and the establishment of the State of Israel might have never been possible. And, without Henry Flagler’s Yacht, there might never have been at Banana King.

Discover how a very ambitious banana trader used Flagler’s former yacht to become the most powerful figure in the fruit trade and ultimately the one person who could tip the balance of the United Nations’ vote in favor of partitioning Palestine, making possible the founding of the State of Israel.
