Letter From FDR To King Ibn Saud, April 5, 1945
« on: September 24, 2002, 01:55:35 PM »
His Majesty Abdul Aziz Ibn Abdur Rahman al-Faisla al-Saud, King of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh

Great and Good Friend:

I have recieved the communication which your majesty sent me under date of March 10, 1945, in which you refer to the question of Palestine and to the continuing interest of the Arabs in current developments affecting that country.
I am gratified that your majesty took this occasion to bring your views on this question to my attention, and I have given the most careful attention to the statements which you make in your letter. I am also mindful of the memorable conversation which we had not too long ago, and in the course of which I had the opportunity to obtain so vivid an impression of your majesty's sentiments on this question.
Your majesty will recall that on previous occasions I communicated to you the attitude of the American Government toward Palestine, and made clear our desire that no decision be taken with respect of the basic situation in that country without full consultation with both Arabs and Jews. Your majesty will also doubtless recall that during our recent conversation I assured you that I would take no action, in my capacity as Chief of the Executive Branch of this Government, which might prove hostile to the Arab people.
It gives me pleasure to renew to your majesty the assurances which you have previously recieved regarding the attitude of my Government and my own, as a Chief Executive, with regard to the question of Palestine, and to inform you that the policy of this Government in this respect is unchanged.
I desire also at this time to send you my best wishes for you majesty's continued good health and for the welfare of your people.

Your Good Friend,
Franklin D. Roosevelt




The conflict, which continues to this day, was possible to solve peacefully already 50 years ago. Unfortunately, one weak after writing this letter, FDR died. Harry Truman threw the Palestinian question back into the court of the British, supporting immigration of 100,000 European Jews to Palestine. Truman told his diplomats, "I am sorry, gentlemen, but I have to answer to hundreds of thousands who are anxious for the succes of Zionism; I do not have hundred of thousands of Arabs among my constituents."

"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

We weren't talking about priorities.  We were talking about one president supporting the illegal occupation and immigration of 100,000 European Jews.  Laying the groundwork for todays violent political climate.

No.  Actually you tried to trivialize Harry Trumans lack of consideration for the Arab world.

Okay then.  Adolf Hitler was just more concerned with other issues as well.

Truman was like a Democratic version of Bush, only back then, he was excused 'cause it was very world changing time with WWII and all the USSR and Middle East changes. Truman, like Bush were highly uneducated, but unlike Bush, Truman actually worked for his spot, Bush was just his fathers son. FDR had big plans, and at that time not all agreed with Wilson, who wanted a seprate Jew nation. FDR was more in the middle, and a cold war and Middle East conflect was far from his mind. The greatest President ever was FDR, but he died in office, and we got Truman who was trigger happy, and ready to start war with anybody, and drop A-Bombs, though that topic is another argument all together.
