As the Arabs see the Jews

As the Arabs see the Jews

A fascinating declaration made in November 1947 by the late King Abdullah bin al-Hussein on the issue of Palestine. With thanks to Farhad Diba "As the Arabs see the Jews" His Majesty King Abdullah, The American Magazine November, 1947 Summary This fascinating essay, written by King Hussein’s grandfather King Abdullah, appeared in the United States six months before the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. In the article, King Abdullah disputes the mistaken view that Arab opposition to Zionism (and later the state of Israel) is because of longstanding religious or ethnic hatred.
