Emir Feisal, the son of King Hussein of the Hedjaz, arrived in London on 18 September 1919. Although disappointed with his testimony before the King-Crane Commission, Chaim Weizmann welcomed him cordially. 1 “While the Emir’s star does not appear to be ascending,” Benjamin Cohen briefed Justice Louis D. Brandeis, “he is the only official representative of Arabia, and the Zionist friendship with him must be considered symbolic of Zionist friendship with his people…Weizmann has done his best,” Cohen continued, “honestly and unofficially, to reconcile Feisal’s interests to the general Syrian settlement without giving cause of offence to anyone.” 2
