    That there are any legitimate rights for an Arab state west of the Jordan river. In 1946 the British subverted the purpose of their Mandate and unilaterally granted Transjordan its independence thereby creating an independent Arab state in the Levant with no regard for the rights and needs of the Jewish population. According to Sir Alec Kirkbride, the British representative in the area, Transjordan was: "... intended to serve as a reserve of land for use in the resettlement of Arabs once the National Home for the Jews ... became an accomplished fact. There was no intention at that stage of forming the territory east of the River Jordan into an independent Arab state." By granting Transjordan`s independence, the British in 1946 created an independent Palestine-Arab state. See UK SoS Bevin`s speech to the U.N. General Assembly proclaiming Transjordan`s independence (reported fully in The New York Times, Jan. 18, 1946).
