Britain and the US Respond to the Palestinian Refugee Problem Introduction The previous chapter demonstrated how Cold War strategic interests influenced the policies of both Britain and the US towards the question of Palestine between 1945 and 1948. It showed that despite there being a general agreement on the importance of maintaining Arab goodwill and preventing the Soviet Union from exploiting the void left by Britain’s withdrawal from the region, there was neither a unified nor a coordinated policy approach towards the future of Palestine.

148 However, their differences reflected a tactical, rather than strategic divergence. Truman’s commitment to the goals of the Zionist movement was limited. 150 Evan M. 151 Two weeks after the release of the UNSCOP report, the US delegation to the UN debated what US policy should be ahead of Secretary of State Marshall’s address to the UN on the matter. In a view similar to that of the British Foreign Office, Marshall argued that adopting the majority report would lead to a very violent Arab reaction and that the US should avoid arousing the Arabs and precipitate their rapprochement with the Soviet Union.

169 Just as importantly, Truman calculated that Saudi oil was tied to the US and would not be affected by US policy towards Palestine. He therefore pursued the middle line between his advisors and the State Department where opposition to partition rested on the assumption that the Soviet Union would not support it. 174 This apparent about face in policy occurred as Czechoslovakia fell to communist forces and there was a ‘war scare’ mentality in the US. 175 Conclusion Despite Britain and the US being, for the most part, in agreement on the necessity of checking perceived Soviet expansion, the two wartime allies drifted apart in their respective policies towards Palestine.
