Refugees. (29 Jul 1938)

Captain Horace Cox: That does not detract in any way from the point I was making, that the financing of this industry by the Jews has greatly benefited the Arabs. Owing to Jewish development and enterprise the employment of Arab labour has increased in urban areas, particularly in the ports. I can give one or two other examples which show that the Arabs have very much benefited from the activities of the Jews in...

Middle East (16 Jul 1958)

Hon. Patrick Maitland: We have an interest to see that we have sufficiently stable and independent Arab régimes in order that our own interests are respected, and also in order that those régimes can make peace with Israel. Régimes that are the product of some coup d'état, régimes that depend on revenge and bloodshed in the first place, for their creation, are not likely to have such a basis in widespread...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Outrages. (15 Dec 1937)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I do not think it is either the military or the civil. The fact is that one of the leading Arab notables in Haifa has been murdered by an Arab extremist and a similar attack has been made by one who is alleged to be an Arab. It is terrorism of Arab by Arab.

Orders of the Day — Middle East (14 Mar 1957)

Sir Godfrey Nicholson: —but let us beware of danger of becoming anti-Arab. Let us recognise the fact that Arab nationalism is a most powerful force and that it would be a fatal mistake for this country to fall into the same trap as that into which France has fallen. France is at war with the whole Arab world, and unless we take care, because we are quarrelling with Colonel Nasser we shall find ourselves...

Centenary of the Balfour Declaration (25 Oct 2017)

Matthew Offord: I agree with that understanding of the declaration, but I will move on. Arabic is Israel’s official second language—I thought it was English. Many of the road signs are in Hebrew and Arabic. Just like all Israelis, the Israeli Arab community have freedom to practice their faith. The Palestinians today refer to Israel’s war of independence as “al-Nakba”, meaning the catastrophe, when...

Middle East - Question for Short Debate (23 Feb 2016)

Baroness Coussins: My Lords, language is the key to understanding different cultures, so the importance of Arabic and other Middle Eastern languages is obvious. Arabic is the first language of nearly 300 million people, the majority Muslim. A further billion Muslims are not native speakers, but engage with Arabic as the language of the Koran. Its relevance to the UK is cultural, economic and security-related....

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Middle East: Mass Media (30 Mar 2009)

Bill Rammell: While no formal study has been undertaken into the possible effects of reporting in the Arabic media on extremist Islamic groups in the UK, it is possible that some stories in the Arabic media may indeed serve to reinforce such groups' beliefs. However, we have no evidence to suggest that patterns of media consumption of extremist groups are particularly distinctive, and we believe that they...

Orders of the Day — Palestine. (6 Mar 1940)

Lieut-Colonel Leo Amery: Because the promises, such as they were, were made to King Hussein. It was King Feisal, and not the Arabs of Palestine, who played that important part in connection with the conquest of Palestine. However, I am not concerned with that issue. I am raising the question of why this particular moment should have been chosen. My right hon. Friend brought forward again the fear of the creation of a...

Participation of Arabs in Public Life — Question (9 Jan 2013)

Baroness Warsi: I agree with the noble Lord that there are many Arabs playing a hugely influential role in large parts of society, including as councillors. I think the noble Lord will also agree that those who identify themselves as Arabs have many different countries of origin, backgrounds and, indeed, religions-there are many people who are Arab and Christian or Arab and Muslim, for example. I agree with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Palestine (Disturbances) (3 Dec 1947)

Mr Arthur Jones: I have not received complete reports yet on recent events in Palestine, but the High Commissioner has already briefly reported incidents on 2nd December, when Arab demonstrations took place in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Haifa, Nazareth, Ramle, Acre, Tiberias, Beisan and Tarshiha. These disturbances, the High Commissioner informs me, were sporadic and unorganised. In Jerusalem there was mob violence...

David Cameron: We are getting good support from members of the Arab League: both the Qataris and the United Arab Emirates are providing planes, and logistic support is coming from some other members of the Arab League. The key is that the contact group, which my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary helped to set up, has already had a number of meetings and further ones are forthcoming. In those meetings,...
