I The Arab War Effort
Hi** Hf

I he light of such testimony, Britain’s present attitude of favoring the
irabs against the Jews in Palestine is one which is deplored by all
air-minded people of every religious group.
We print below an introduction to “The Arab War Effort” by
Jean Alfange, Chairman of the New York State Chapter of the
American Christian Palestine Committee.
* * * *
We of the American Christian Palestine Committee have felt it
mperitive to assemble and publish this account of the part played
ly the Arab lands in the Second World War. In doing this we are
notivated by a profound concern with the central issue of our day—
he need for shaping a stable peace on democratic foundations.
The tendency to forget the lessons of the past has always been

me of man’s most dangerous characteristics. It is acutely dangerous
low to the decisive days following the great agony of the war. It
las become painfully clear that unless we apply to the building of
Jie peace the lessons learned at suck cost during the war, we shall
lot be able to meet the new perils threatening to undermine our life
in this planet. One of those hard earned lessons was simply this:
[hat appeasement does not work. The enemies of human freedom
jould neither be bribed nor cajoled. Munich proved that once and
br all.
The material presented in this publication proves it once again,
jt demonstrates how in the days when Hitler’s supremacy seemed
pertain, Britain was deserted and betrayed in a most strategic part
f the world by peoples whose 'friendship she had strained herself to
►in. Yet now in 1947 we seem to be returning to the policy of ap
peasement in dealing with precisely those Arab leaders who did their
itmost to aid the Axis powers. The essence of British policy in the
piddle East has not altered since 1939. It has been affected but
Ittle by the failure of appeasement and by the collaborationist record
F the Arab States and of the men who led and still lead them.
The American Christian Palestine Committee believes the pages
fhich follow to be profoundly important. The record they present
pould make the governments of the western democracies reconsider
k r y carefully their course of action in the Middle East. Are we to
bllow the barren and perilous line of appeasement and reaction in
Pis nerve center of the world, the Middle East? Or are we to act
Pong new and truly democratic lines? The facts presented here
Pould help us reach a decision.
This publication does not claim to exhaust the subject of the
[ rab war effort. Os the thousands of available docoments, fewer
Ro a dozen are published here. Os the long lists of hundreds of
bab agents on the German payroll, only a few are mentioned. Os
r numerous cases of sabotage, only a few are recorded.

Mayor C. Frank Whitehead
We have just finished reading a review copy
of “The Arab War Effort,” published and distrib
uted by The American Christian Palestine Com
mittee. This is a documented account showing
proof of the alignment of the Arab forces with
those of Germany in the recent war.
To the reader who has kept up closely with
the war effort the facts mentioned here will
not be a revelation, for they certainly are not
in dispute in any responsible quarter. It is well
known that the Arabs sided with Hitler. In
