the Hashemite (Islamic) Occupation

Professor Kontorovich:
I would like to hear you speak about the Hashemite (Islamic) Occupation of the Tribal Territories of Gad, Reuven and Manasseh.
These territories were allocated to the Jewish Community (body politic) via the Mandate for Palestine and the Anglo-American Treaty of 1924; and the Hashemites themselves agreed to Jewish sovereignty over these territories when they signed the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement.
The reservation that Emir Faisal had concerning the failure to give “Arab Independence” cannot be invoked to negate the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement simply because the Arabs were given their independence (vis-a-vis the Kingdom of the Hejaz) via the Mandates for Mesopotamia, Syria and Lebanon.
As Chaim Weizmann asserted, the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement remains valid to this day because the Arabs have their independence.
In 1947 Weizmann explained :

“A postscript was also included in this treaty. This postscript relates to a reservation by King Feisal that he would carry out all the promises in this treaty if and when he would obtain his demands, namely, independence for the Arab countries. I submit that these requirements of King Feisal have at present been realized. The Arab countries are all independent, and therefore the condition on which depended the fulfillment of this treaty, has come into effect. Therefore, this treaty, to all intents and purposes, should today be a valid document”.[19]
King Faisal I of Iraq never fully intended to commit to his signing of the Faisal Weizmann Agreement as is evident with his pan-Arab political aspirations!
His father, Hussein evidently persuaded Faisal to renege on the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement because he proclaimed himself the Caliph of All Muslims (a Grandiose Schizophrenic delusion in my opinion)….
