"Authority implies justice all round, and when justice is denied .... " All Palestinian senior officials, without exception, signed a joint memorandum submitted on 30 June 1936 to the British high commissioner; the memorandum supported Palestinian national demands as formulated by the Arab Higher Committee (see 242). The list of signatories and their titles indicate both the range of Palestinian administrative and professional talent already in public service in the mid-1930s, and the extent to which the Palestinian national movement had crystallized by then.
