Spectator Asks Defining of Jews’ Aims in Palestine

Spectator, conservative weekly, declared in an editorial on the Palestine situation today that the question for the Royal Commission to decide in its forthcoming investigation of the disorders is not whether the League mandate can work, but how.

The editorial stressed the need of viewing the problem from the stand-point of both Arabs and Jews and asserted that if the avowed Zionist policy was for a majority in Palestine, no peace was possible.

If the Royal Commission, it declared, is able to secure a definition of the ultimate aims of the Jews in Palestine, it will have taken the first step toward effecting a conciliation between both parties.
