• If you felt my questioning your wisdom was condescension more than snark, sorry.

    However, the Palestinian Mandate was distinct from Transjordan. Your inability to understand that distinction is troubling. The partition plan for the Palestinian Mandate clearly did not indicate in any of its clauses or pre-1947 interpretations the transfer of the majority population in the Mandate out of the Mandate to the adjoining Mandate of Transjordan. Or maybe you’ve found one. If so, please share it with us here. Thanks.
