The Acceptance of Partition

The Mandates Commission of the League has made a brave show of independence, but it looks like being forced to adopt in substance the plan of the Palestine Commission. For the British Government has conveyed to it a fairly plain intimation that it will on no account continue to be the Mandatory Power and there is no other Power strong enough to hold down Palestine which would not either refuse the Mandate or be suspect to the other powers if she accepted it.

The ZionistS assembled at Zurich adopted a resolution that began by denying the premise on which the Commission's Report was based, namely, that the terms of the Mandate had been proved unworkable. But they too were compelled by the British Government's attitude and the persuasiveness of Dr. Wcizmann to end their resolution by a guarded consent to negotiate on the details of partition. The Arabs still refuse to agree to partition in any form, but this is their ordinary preliminary to bargaining. The course of the bargaining will depend largely on whether the Arabs can maintain their present appearance of a united front.
