“Britain immediately issued a warrant for al- Husseini arrest and shortly later outlawed the Arab Higher Committee (of which al- Husseini was chairman).  Al- Husseini escaped arrest and eventually made his way to Syria which became the Committee’s new base of operations.  In the absence of the established leadership, more radical politicians assumed control of the resistance movement within Palestine itself.  Anti-Zionist and anti-British attacks rapidly increased.”
