PALESTINE is a country about the size of Wales. Its population before it was singled out to be a National Home for the Jews, in round figures, consisted of:—
Muslim Arabs, 500,000.
Christian Arabs, 63,000.
The number of Jews is now (1938) over 400,000.
THE BASIC LIE BEHIND THE JEWISH CLAIM TO PALESTINE.
By means of constant propaganda the Jews have induced the Gentile peoples to believe that the Jews have some moral right to occupy Palestine.
No such moral right exists.
The Jews crept into Palestine by stealth; for only about 350 years in the whole history of the country was it under Jewish control; and the Jews lost it by conquest. Since the Romans came to control the country in A.D. 70, the Jews have never ruled Palestine in any form. They actually have no historical claim to the country at all. They have generally been an absolute nuisance to it.
