The Problem of Palestine
TITT^ all believe that Palestine is the Holy Land, yet between us we have
Vr made it most unholy. In the future let Palestine be governed by a
trust whose duty it shall be to keep it holy.
That is the passionate plea that Dr. Maude Rqyden makes in this
brilliant and human history of Jew and Arab in Palestine. Dr. Roy den
stands above the fierce battle between Jem and Arabs in the tragically
divided land. Her book is a history not a biased political pamphlet,
