Negotiations with the Arab leaders beyond Palestine were being carried out by T. E. Lawrence, who informed [Winston] Churchill on 17 January [1921 CE] that he had concluded an agreement with Hussein’s* eldest son, Emir Feisal, under which, in return for Arab sovereignty in Baghdad, Amman and Damascus, Feisal “agreed to abandon all claims of his father to [West] Palestine**.”

* Sherif Hussein of Mecca
** West Palestine means Israel and East Palestine means Jordan.

Winston Churchill said this in year 1921 CE:

“Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion [Islam] paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde* force exists in the world.”

* VOCABULARY NOTE:
The word RETROGRADE refers to an object which moves in the backward direction or degenerates to a worse condition.

Winston Churchill said this in a parliamentary debate 1921 June 14:

The Wahabis*, Churchill noted, “profess a life of exceeding austerity, and what they practice themselves they rigorously enforce on others. They hold it as an article of duty, as well as of faith, to kill all who do not share their opinions and make slaves of their wives and children. Women have been put to death in Wahabi villages for simply appearing in the streets. It is a penal offense to wear a silk garment. Men have been killed for smoking a cigarette…”

* HISTORY NOTE: In July 2004, the 9/11 Commission identified Wahabism as a cause of Islamic Terrorism.

In the year 1922 CE Winston Churchill said this:

“Left to themselves, the Arabs of Palestine would not in a thousand years have taken effective steps towards the irrigation and electrification of Palestine.

They would have been quite content to dwell, a handful of philosophic people, in the wasted sun-scorched plains, letting the waters of the Jordan continue to flow unbridled and unharnessed into the Dead Sea.”

This comment from Winston Churchill appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle dated 1929 September 12, one day after he said it:

“The Jews have developed the country, grown orchards and grain fields out of the desert, built schools and great buildings, constructed irrigation projects and water power houses and have made Palestine a much better place in which to live than it was before they came a few years ago. The Arabs are much better off now than before the Jews came, and it will be a short time only before they realize it.”

The 1929 September 13 edition of the New York Times printed an article which quoted Winston Churchill saying:

“To Jewish enterprise, the Arab owes nearly everything he has.
Fanaticism and a sort of envy have driven the Arab to violence and for the present the problem is one of proper policing until harmony has been restored.”
