British Should Cooperate in Zion

Dr. Frederick B. Robinson, president of the College of the City of New York, in an article in the Pro-Palestine Herald, a magazine “dedicated to Gentile-Jewish Cooperation,” feels that the British Arab policy in Palestine is a blunder. Dr. Robinson writes:

There should be no Arab-Jewish question in Palestine—if the British cooperate. There is ample room and opportunity for millions of Jews in Palestine without encroaching upon the Arabs’ rights and with a resulting prosperity that would lift the Arabs out of their miserable existence.

The day when an enlightened British officialdom in Palestine will rid the country of the pan-Arab troublemaker, the Arab-Jewish question will be no more existent in Palestine than it is in the British Isles.
