Egypt and Iraq, the two most powerful Arab countries, will probably not join any Arab federation, it was stated today by Sir Ronald Storks, former governor for Jerusalem, addressing a students’ meeting at the University of London. Sir Ronald, who has just returned from a visit to the Fiddle East, said that such a federation would probably start as an economic and cultural union of Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan and Palestine. The British people owe a “great debt of gratitude to the Palestine Jewish Community” for its contributions to the Allied war effort, he said.
