Supplementary Memorandum by the Government of Palestine, Including Notes on Evidence Given to the United Nations' Special Committee on Palestine up to the 12th July, 1947
Jerusalem: Government Printer, 1947.
First Edition. Softcover. Very good. 59 pp, stapled wrappers. Light abrasion to front cover, upper corner bumped, owner's initials in ink on title page, otherwise unmarked. Chapter I (the first 25 pages) offers "an historical summary of the principal political events in Palestine since 1st January, 1946." This is followed by "Notes on Statements by Jewish Witnesses," "a note on education," "a note on the cost of lawlessness in Palestine," and "a brief note on the 'Political Survey 1946-47' presented by the Jewish Agency to the Committee." Underneath the table of contents is the explanation that "the purpose of the Notes in Chapters II and V is to correct some of the mis-statements made by the Committee. Since no Arab evidence has been offered, they necessarily deal only with the Jewish evidence. They omit any comment on the calumnies which some of this evidence contains. The facts may be allowed to speak for themselves."
