Submitted by DAVID J FEIGER (United States), Oct 1, 2009 at 02:55

The British Military in 1919 secretly conspired with Emir Faisal to take Syria from France, abandon the Zionists and give Syria and Palestine to Faisal. The military could not just do this they had to have a cover. their cover were the Arabs. In July 1919 the Syrian National Congress demanded that Syria {including Palestine} be united under King Faisals' Iraq. The French became aware of British involvement in inciting this action and Briton denied it.. On the second front they had to have an Arab organization to counter the Zionisits.

The first British run organization was result of District Military Commander Lt. Col. J D Hubbard who inspired the Arab leadership to form The Muslim Christian Association under the personal direction of the District Head of British Intelligence Captain Brunton. In Jerusalem, Governor Col. Ronald Storrs working with Col. Walters-Taylor established and maintained close contact with Amin El Husseni and other Arab contacts. In early 1920 they suggested the desireability of anti Zionist riots the impress ypon the government the need to abandon it's Zionist Policy. In March 1920 Sherifian were brought in to agitate the Arabs against the Jews.On the Wednesday before Easter Col. Walters-Taylor met with Amin Al Husseni and told him that on Easter Sunday he had a great opportunity to show the world Arab opposition to the Zionists if there were disturbances of sufficient violence in Jerusalem the Brirish position on Palestine would change. Thus the British organized, instigated and financed .violent Arab Nationalism was created.

This history has been buried for 90 years. It's substantiated and documented by the Military Enquiry that replaced the military goverment with a civilian one. Also many of the men involed have verified this in biographes and interviews. British antisemitism based on the belief that German Jews were trying to take over the UK was the big lie. If only the truth were told.
