What in- There was a time within living memory when Jews and Arabs were a mixed society and lived in peace side by side in Palestine. If Statesmen and journalists now suggest that such a mixed society might have a chance to be accepted by its their memory is certainly faulty to the ex- treme. At the time Jews acquired land it was not stolen from the Arabs as is often believed and immigration started in earnest after the First World Zionism had looked forward to Jews and Arabs en- joying the same rights and op- portunities. Their views had been shared by the Arab National Move- ment when King Hussein of Hejaz wrote on March saw the Jews streaming to Palestine from America the cause of causes could not escape those' who had a gift of deeper they knew that the country was for its original for all their a sacred and beloved His Emir chief delegate at the Paris Peace recognized a separate Jewish entity with which the Arab State maintain diplomatic relations as early as Jan. 1919. SETTLEMENTS After it was a matter of finding sites for settlements in Palestine which were available for purchase. Vast areas of land were sold to the Jewish Before unproductive rocks f .i National Fund not cheaply by Sheiks and absentee landowners. This land con- sisted mainly of unproductive drifted over with sand and no longer worked. In almost every the settlers had to reclaim the soil from centuries of neglect. Where sand was not the it was malarial swamps they had to drain From the the settlers tried to cultivate good relations with their Arab mostly tenant farmers.

Praise be to is your thanks to is your thanks to you don't enjoy your I the meat is ex- cellent More important than these social contacts were the daily meetings of Jews and Arabs in the fields The Jew with his tractor ploughed deep. The Arab barely scratched the sur- face of the soil with his mule team pulling a wooden plough or using his wife to do animals' work if he had no mules. These neighbors were friendly the Arabs benefitted from the change in agricultural methods as often happens when the poor settle down with the pet- ty theft was common. The Jewish settlers glossed over such irritation quoting the Arab's he has stolen you an Arab is not your SERVICE A service all settlements offered was much appreciated and used by their Arab free medical treatment. The Jewish doc- tors always found time for a daily clinic for Arabs throughout the you could always see lines of women and children waiting for the doctors' attention. They suffered from intestinal skin diseases and trachoma. Many Arabs sent their children to Jewish settlements to asked for and received seeds for their land. Troubles between these peo- ple were not due to their relationship as human beings. they were fostered by Arab Nationalist leaders at a high political level. The worst troublemaker was the ex- Mufti of Haj Amin whd had spent the war years of the Second World War in Germany and collaborated with the Nazis. He directed the whose bands in- filtrated and terrorised Arab villages who were friendly with Jewish settlers. With their contingent of German and Yugloslav Nazis and Italian Fascists who had es- caped war crimes trials by fleeing to the Middle they succeeded in their hate campaigns. The other Arab nations refused to leave Palestinian affairs to the Palestinians. They began to interfere even before the British Mandate ended. As soon as the UN declared Israel an indepen- dent they attacked with massive armies. It was probably the settlements' rapid growth and efficiency that frightened Arab leaders more than anything else. In less than a generation the Jews had reclaimed the desert where Turks and Arabs for thousands of per- mitted neglect and desolation. Israel became a humiliation to its noisy neighbors because they had regarded the land as worthless when sold to early Zionist settlers who had by sheer guts and hard turned it into the most valuable piece of real estate in the Middle East. FLED As soon as Arab armies and irregulars attacked in Arab refugees began fleeing in ever increasing numbers. The Jewish settlers were puzzled by the mass exodus until they heart the broadcasts from Arabian your home now. After our vic- tory you will return and take over the lands and possessions of the This propaganda was the principle factor in the creation of the grievous Arab refugee problem. The motive for inducing whole populations to often against their wishes and in spite of pleas from the Jews for them to was probably the leaders' fear that some Arabs would side with the Jews as they had done all dur- ing the undeclared war that preceded the invasion.
