Haj Amin Husseini and the Arab Palestinians have impatiently waited for
the day when the British finalize their military evacuation from
Palestine, but their power has gradually eroded. Five Mid-Eastern
nations have gathered around the tiny country to divide it up for
themselves, totally ignoring the interests of the Palestinians in their
greedy conspiracy to destroy the Jews.
While the Jewish Haganah frantically trains its pilots in fighter planes, Moshe is still
attempting to supply the Old City of Jerusalem with food. Even before
statehood is declared on May 14, 1948, full-scale fighting breaks out
between the Arabs and the Jews with no intervention from the British.
And caught in the middle are the fleeing Palestinian refugees clogging
the roads in front of the incoming armies.
