Nazi Organ Offers Solution

Field Marshal Hermann Goering’s newspaper Essener National Zeitung suggests a solution of the Palestine problem based on a combination of the ideas of Lord Samuel in his House of Lords speech in July, 1937 (an Arab-Jewish bi-national state with Jewish immigration curtailed) and the recent Iraq plan (an independent state, allied by treaty to Britain with immigration stopped and Jewish and minority rights guaranteed).

Pointing out that both schemes oppose the partition plan, the article states that the Iraq plan regards as possible the granting of cultural, political and religious autonomy to the different groups. a combination of both ideas is the way out, the paper said, “guaranteeing the Balfour ideal of a Jewish home for the Zionists, referring only to the immigrants already there, but no future immigration, and doing justice to the arab claim.”
