Mrs Daniel Povey:
Forty years ago today the British abandoned Palestine. Israel was bom and war broke out between Arabs and Jews. One Arab leader, King
Abdullah of Transjordan, had tried to do a secret deal with the Jews. For the first time the details of his meetings with Golda Meir are revealed. Was he a realist and a protector of the Palestinians or a traitor to their cause? In the end he paid for his actions with his life.
Peter Snow tells the story of intrigue, secret diplomacy and finally war which marked the extraordinary relationship between an Arab king and the emerging state of Israel. It explains the origins of the Palestinian problem and the violence seen in Israel today.
