Excerpt

Since the war now raging is one of global dimensions, involving the future and destiny of all mankind, it may appear to some that the solution of the problems of so small a country as Palestine, will be but an incidental, if not a task of minor importance for the United Nations at some future peace conference. I have nevertheless made Palestine the central theme of this book.

I have done this because I do not believe that the defeat of the Axis will automatically solve the Jewish problem with which Palestine is intimately and inextricably bound up. For that question is in fact being settled now; on the one hand by the frightful and uninterrupted killing of Jews in Europe and on the other by the lack of interest in high places, both in Britain and in America, in providing the terrorized remnants of European Jewry with a means of escape or even with a ray of hope for survival.

In the welter of immense and vexing problems facing the United Nations in Europe, Asia, and Africa, especially in the world's traditional areas of colonialism, wherein Palestine is located, the present method of dealing with the Jews by reassuring them from time to time with saccharine but perfectly meaningless phrases and on the other hand by enforcing their exclusion from Palestine may well be, I am afraid, indicative of the manner and spirit in which other peoples' problems are to be dealt with by the secret diplomacy of an unregenerate imperialism.
