Stores Pessimistic Concerning Establishment of Pan-arab Federation

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.
