Not to any extent that I ever heard of, Keith. There are always a few who will let temporary authority go to their heads. But certainly nothing like on the scale I am on about!

Of course some of Germans living here, or happening to be here at the outbreak of war, would be interned as "enemy aliens", after appearing before risk-assessing boards &c. So were British subjects of dubious loyalty in their political records, like the Mosleys &c. That would be fully in accord with Geneva Convention, &c. I believe they lived quite comfortably in camps set up for the purpose on the Isle of Man. But seriously, you couldn't have enemy nationals of ex members of the British Union of Fascists living at large within the community, could you? Both the community and they themselves would have felt threatened, uncomfortable, anomalous.

see

where some amazing facts can be found about internees buying local properties &c.

It really isn't relevant, or in any way comparable, to bona fide Arab citizens of Israel going about their lawful occasions being harrassed and inconvenienced for the sake of it.
