Prince Faisal (later King Faisal of Iraq) writes to a senior American Zionist in 1919:
We feel that the Arabs and Jews are cousins in race, have suffered similar oppressions at the hands of the powers stronger than themselves.
We Arabs, especially the educated among us, look with the deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement. We will wish the Jews the most hearty welcome home.
A document of understanding and welcome of what could have been.
