Civil War along the Potomac

Civil War along the Potomac

(p.149) 7. Civil War along the Potomac
The Unmaking of the Middle East

Jeremy Salt

University of California Press

This chapter describes the conflict that developed between different branches of the U.S. administration over policy in Palestine in 1948. It explains that similar tensions emerged when President Lyndon B. Johnson consolidated the special relationship with Israel. The chapter suggests that one of the battlefield casualties of this so-called civil war along the Potomac was Loy Henderson, who was assigned as ambassador to Turkey before it was decided that Ankara was too close to the Middle East and that he should go to India instead.

Keywords:   U.S. administration, Palestine, trusteeship, Lyndon B. Johnson, Israel, Loy Henderson, ambassador, Turkey, Ankara, Middle East
