November 11, 1947 Arabs Say No to Jewish Homeland – State of Israel

The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al Hasanji (Husseini), Yasser Arafat, Mahmud Abbas

 “The Arabs oppose partition for the same reasons Americans would oppose creation of a separate independent state by an alien community imposed on America by force of arms. THE ARABS THEREFORE ARE DETERMINED TO FIGHT THE CREATION OF A JEWISH STATE IN PART OF PALESTINE WITH THE SAME FORCE AS THEY WOULD FIGHT THE CREATION OF SUCH A STATE IN THE WHOLE OF PALESTINE”
