ABSTRACT
This article explains that most persons interested in international affairs regard the conflict in Palestine as one primarily between the Jews and the Arabs, and that the British are there as a disinterested and benevolent third party. Britain is looked on as being apart from and above the struggle for power gradually approaching a climax in the Holy Land. This is no longer the correct picture of the situation as it exists in 1938. It is the British mandatory government which has become the principal object of Arab hostility. The Arabs have concluded that only by the use of force can they prevent Britain from making the whole of Palestine into a Jewish State. The Arabs fear that Palestine will be swamped by Jews.
