  1. Any info on a Weizmann-Untermeyer-Brandeis connection to President Wilson, lobbying him to enter WWI to save the Brit’s, the Brit’s promising Palestine to the Jews in return? Also, what was the Zionist response to the sudden creation of Trans Jordan, whisking 80% of the Palestine Mandate off the map, and out of their grasp?
