The world has been amazed at Britain’s actions in Pal
estine and her sabotaging of any solution for Palestine in
land by the United Nations. Many people have wondered
'.l what was her motive in disarming the Jews while arming

■ at the same time she was sabotaging every recommendation
I towards those ends submitted in the councils of the United
I Nations, and while she was offering and building up the
x I personnel and material strength of the Arab Legion?
In our mind there is very little mystery in Britain s
I actions. The simple fact is—Britain does not expect to stay
I out of Palestine, and hopes to get back in through Abdullah.
I The British plan is to have Abdullah seize Jerusalem and the
I Negev and incorporate these areas in the kingdom of Trans-
I jordania. This would give Abdullah the prestige of a great
I city for his capital and a territorial area with ports on both
■ the Mediterranean and the Red Sea, making his country one
I of the truly influential forces in the Near and Middle East.
I It was to this end that Britain kept the Arab Legion in Pal-
I estine, and never sent it back as was her duty and treaty
I obligation. It was for this reason that Britain armed, in
I advance, those Palestinian Arabs who were friendly to
I Abdullah and would play the British game. It was for this
I reason the British disarmed, in advance, the Jews who
I would be expected to resist invasion by Abdullah and his

I lute economic dependence on Britain, he would be compelled
to do whatever the British ordered. Britain is determined
to stay in the Palestine area, and she is not reckoning the
1 1 cost—either in American ERP dollars or in Jewish and
I Arab lives.

The British government is Public
Enemy No. 1 of the Jewish people.
Through British intrigue and double
dealings it is the prime mover in
the war in Palestine, and the world
must recognize that it is Great Brit
ain which must be held responsible
for any destruction to the shrines
sacred to three great religions.
Great Britain has been and still is
seeking to frustrate the will of the
United Nations, and is deliberately
encouraging war in Palestine.
We cannot understand how self
respecting Jews can buy British

Salute to Israel

Something great has happened

Mr. Gromyko now and then reverts

English full well, so the represent

Q. —What has been the impact of the Bible upon the world?
A. —It has fused together into a unity the interest and aspirations
of mankind and has articulated them into a language of incomparable
force. It has comforted the sorrow-laden and the heavy-hearted; it
has inspired the timid and hesitant; it has summoned to self discipline
the weak and wayward; it has pleaded with the greedy and mighty
for righteousness, for the democratic way of life; it has purified the
pagan conceptions of God and the Universe of their dross, and set
down its own understanding of the Creator and Creation in words
that were as simple and suggestive as they were sublime; it has
irrigated and fecundated half the literatures of the world; it has sent
thundering through the ages the threatening, challenging voice of
prophecy; and it has held out to an anxious humanity, the promise
of an end of days when men should live in prosperity and peace with
none to make them afraid.

Q. —From what famous play in English literature does the quota
tion “The devil can cite the scripture for his purpose” come from?
A.—The famous quotation comes from Act 3 of Shakespeare’s
“The Merchant of Venice.”

What great American military leader and president described the
Bible as “the rock upon which our republic rests.”
A. —This statement was made by Andrew Jackson, the seventh
president of the United States, to his physician while on his death
