London (Mar. 1)
Regret at the fact that the palestine problem will not be dealt with until after the war, was expressed today in the House of Commons by S.S. Hammersley, Conservative.
“It is unfertunate that the Arab and the Palestine problems will not be solved until the war is over,” he said. He stressed the fact that France and Russia are also interested in the Moslem countries, and warned that any post-war policy with regard to these problems should be arrived at after due consultation, and not be forced upon Britain by the course of events, as it was the case in Greece.
Lord Strabolgi, addressing a meeting last night under the chairmanship of Phineas Horowitz, London Zionist leader, said that the idea of making Palestine a Jewish Dominion would strongly appeal to millions of ordinary electors in Britain who are often at a Loss to grasp the meaning of Zionism. He added that the leaders of the Liberal Party and of the Labor Party told him that they would support this idea, but the Conservative Party must still be won over.
