The Key to Zion (Zion Chronicles Book Five)
Haj Amin Husseini and the Arab Palestinians have impatiently waited for the day when the British finalize their military evacuation from Palestine, but their power has gradually eroded. Five Mid-Eastern nations have gathered around the tiny country to divide it up for themselves, totally ignoring the interests of the Palestinians in their greedy conspiracy to destroy the Jews.
While the Jewish Haganah frantically trains its pilots in fighter planes, Moshe is still attempting to supply the Old City of Jerusalem with food. Even before statehood is declared on May 14, 1948, full-scale fighting breaks out between the Arabs and the Jews with no intervention from the British. And caught in the middle are the fleeing Palestinian refugees clogging the roads in front of the incoming armies.
