Howard Grief first conducted an educational learn until eventually he came across the main becoming solution. for approximately four hundred years, the Ottoman Empire governed over all of the Balkans, the center East and North Africa. The fight for the liberation of these components started within the Balkan lands initially of the 19th century and resulted in 1913. within the First global conflict, the task [of liberation] used to be accomplished and Turkey used to be decreased to the Anatolian Peninsula. All of this used to be inside the San Remo contract of April 1920. the truth that it was once accurately at that position and time that Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and the states of the Arabian Peninsula got [thanks to the victory of the relevant Allied Powers over the vital Powers] the exact same liberation from the Ottoman yoke strengthens the procedure of Grief who provides the facts for the inclusion of Palestine [i.e., the Jewish humans] within the record of beneficiaries in regard to the “settlement [or disposition] of the inheritance of the Ottoman Empire.” Grief has came across the real and such a lot valuable lever for our uncomplicated case, and i'm confident that his method merits to be applied [in providing our case to the world.]
