9780231068383: Collusion Across the Jordan: King Abdullah, the Zionist Movement, and the Partition of Palestine

This book is an account of the highly secret relationship between Abdullah, the Hashemite ruler of Jordan, and the Zionist movement. Spanning three decades, from the appointment of Abdullah as Emir in 1921 to his assassination in 1951, this work focuses on the clandestine diplomacy and the political and military processes which determined the fate of Palestine between 1947 and 1950, and which left the Palestinian Arabs without a homeland. King Abdullah has been widely suspected of collaboration with the Zionist enemy; using British, American, Arabic and Israeli sources and recently declassified official documents, the author presents a case to prove that Abdullah not only colluded with the Zionists to gain control over as much of Arab Palestine as possible, but that he also received occasional payments for his collaboration. The author describes secret meetings between Abdullah and Golda Meir and between Ernest Bevin and Tawfiq Abul Huda, the Jordanian Prime Minister, in an a attempt to illuminate the past and to add to an understanding of present, with implications for the quest for peace in the Middle East.
