Analyzes the impact of the situation in Palestine during 1947-48 on the attacks on Jews in Aden at the beginning of December 1947 and in Oujda and Djerada, Morocco, on 7 June 1948. The pogroms in Aden broke out during a three-day strike of the local Muslim population in solidarity with the Arab struggle in Palestine, in the wake of the UN's adoption of a plan to found Jewish and Arab states in Palestine (29 November 1947). The pogroms in Morocco broke out after a declaration of King Muhammad V related to the struggle in Palestine and at a time when the Oujda region was witnessing a constant stream of Moroccan Jews attempting to cross the Algerian border illegally on their way to Palestine. Concludes, however, that the Palestinian issue was only a catalyst for a range of tensions previously unexpressed.
