January 18, 1937 Monseignor Jajjar, Archbishop of Galilee, to the Peel Commission

[Peel] CommissionWhen the Jews become the majority in the country they will dominate, and when they reach that standing, they will be acting contrary to the Koran which says- ‘They have been stricken with misery until the day of Resurrection.’…Judaism looks at this country as the Land of Promise. According to Christianity, we are the new Israel, we are the new people of God.
