Swiss Paper Urges Formation of Bi-national State in Palestine

Only a bi-national state within the framework of a federation which would include Syria, Lebanon and Transjordan, can solve the Palestine problem, the influential Journal de Geneve says in a front-page editorial.

After reviewing the achievements of the Jews in Palestine for the past 25 years, and criticizing the White Paper policy for having hindered rescue activities during the war, the paper says that it is doubtful that Zionism by itself can solve the 2,000-year-old Jewish problem. Destruction of anti-Semitism and justice for all the Jewish people, it states, are bound up with the future of western civilization and are prerequisites for eventual solution of the Jewish problem.
