At a secret meeting of Arab notables from Lebanon, Syria, and Transjordan, Izzat Darwazzah, a leading Palestinian politician, issues a dire warning about Palestine’s future: “There is no boundary to the aspirations of the Zionists. If until September 1937, the Jews spoke about building a National Home in Palestine; today they are already talking about the establishment of a Jewish State in part of Palestine.” Darwazzah warns that if the Arab states refuse to help the Arabs in Palestine, they “will be totally neglected and forgotten.” Arab states do not come to the aid of Palestinians. And while their own leadership remains fragmented and virtually dysfunctional, Zionists continue to slowly build their state. (source)
