The options of the question should be, A) independent after the war. B) made into a Jewish homeland. C) made into a large nation called Trans-Jordan. D) closed to Jewish immigration.
The correct answer is A) independent after the war.
During World War I, Great Britain promised that the Arabs provinces of the Middle East would be independent after the war.
In 1915, the British government needed the Arabs support to defeat the Ottoman Empire in World War I. To make it happen, Great Britain promised independence of its territories. To do so, the British government wrote some letters and sent it to the Arabs. The documents were named “McMahon-Hussein correspondence.” But the British also were secretly negotiating other terms with the governments of France and Russia. So the British lied to the Arabs.
Yes they did. But unfortunately, they were lying! They told the arabs if they join the war with them, they will give them arab countries. But instead, they took them!
