TFJ Series 2: Episode 3
The British convened conferences to quell the Arab revolt and seek a lasting solution between the Arabs and the Jews. But unless the Arabs received everything they demanded, they were unwilling to negotiate. This created a pattern that was still being followed over sixty years later to the frustration of President Bill Clinton. Because of Palestinian violence and fear that Arab dissatisfaction would have detrimental consequences upon the British empire, the British implemented a policy of appeasement with the Arabs resulting in the White Paper of 1939, which was a sellout of British promises, and locked Palestine’s door to European Jewry who so desperately needed to escape the claws of the Nazis.
