She took an unequivocal anti-Zionist position and devoted both her labors and her (considerable) financial resources in support of Arab nationalism. This memoir was published in year the British mandate was terminated. "The creation of the state of Israel and the collapse of the Arab cause in Palestine caused her great distress, but she kept open house for Arab nationalists in London and continued to use her personal wealth in supporting relief services for Palestinian refugees" (ODNB).
