July 7 1937 The Peel Commission Issues Report

Peel CommissionThe Peel Commission issues its report. It proposes dividing Palestine into a small Jewish state (comprising Galilee, the Jezreel Valley and part of the coastal plain, as far as Be’er Toviya), and Arab state (including most of the rest of Palestine) and a British-controlled corridor leading from Jaffa to Jerusalem. The Jews are split over the issue of partition; the Arabs reject the plan.
