Chapter Summary

The twenty-three documents contained in this chapter cover the period directly preceding the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine. Few of the documents are Basle program of the first World Zionist Congress, and letter from Dr. Theodor Herzl to M. Yousef Zia Al-Khalidi. Many of the documents collected in this chapter can be characterized as attempts to resolve pressing questions of how to establish an independent Jewish state in the region and how to regulate Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe to Palestine given the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe. The first Arab-Israeli War began in November 1947 as a civil war between the Jewish and Arab community in Palestine. The United Nations reports and resolutions included in this chapter detail Israeli policies and their effects on Palestinian populations in the territories occupied by Israel as a result of the 1967 war.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Arab-Israeli war; Jewish state; League of Nations; Palestine war; United Nations report
