Two Kinds of Partition
This chapter examines changes in King Abdullah's political position and plans for Palestine after the responsibility for dealing with the Palestine partitioning problem was transferred from Great Britain to the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP). This event led Abdullah to develop a policy objective involving the acquisition of the Arab part of Palestine and its merger with Transjordan. Abdullah's plan was supported by Iraq but it was opposed by Syria and Lebanon for fear that the enlargement of Transjordan might jeopardize their independence and lead to the realization of the Greater Syria plan.
