Partner to Partition: The Jewish Agency's Partition Plan in the Mandate Era
In 1937 the Royal Commission headed by Lord Peel proposed solving the Arab-Jewish conflict by partitioning Palestine into two nation-states. The concept of partition in exchange for a state was acceptable to the Jewish Agency Executive, but not the details set out by the Royal Commission. Thus in 1937-38 the Agency formulated an alternative plan for consideration by the British authorities. At the core of the proposal was the issue of borders. However, the Agency's suggestions and preparations for a Jewish state addressed additional elements, including the question of Jerusalem; population transfer; the status of the Arab minority in the future Jewish state; and plans covering foreign policy, immigration and development, religion and state, finance and security. In this work Yossi Katz shows that the Jewish Agency Executive plans - though never implemented - was not an isolated episode, but had short- and long-term implications from the Jewish perspective.
