The contract was signed on September 23, when city manager Jeff Stewart says he and his team got to work at City Hall. First, they climbed on empty land near the San Gabriel River, but changed course when the cost of development increased – supply links alone cost $2 million. In September 2019, Bellflower`s elected leaders did something amazing. They voluntarily joined a settlement agreement as part of a federal action that forced towns in neighboring Orange County to build shelters for the homeless. The British government, including Churchill, said the declaration did not provide for the transformation of all Of Palestine into a Jewish national home, “but that such a house should be created in Palestine.” [xxii] [xxiii] Emir Faisal, king of Syria and Iraq, entered into a formal written agreement with Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann, designed by T.E. Lawrence, trying to establish a peaceful relationship between Arabs and Jews in Palestine.  The Fayçal-Weizmann Agreement of 3 January 1919 was a short-lived agreement for Jewish-Arab cooperation in the development of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. [z] Fayçal, in his presentation to the peace conference of 6 February 1919, treated Palestine differently and said: “Because of its universal nature, Palestine should be left on a page for the mutual respect of all concerned.”   The agreement was never implemented. [aa] In a letter that Lawrence then wrote in English to sign Fayçal, he stated that the text of the statement was published in the press a week after it was signed on November 9, 1917.  Other related events took place in a short period of time, the two most important being the almost immediate military capture of Palestine by Great Britain and the flight of the previously secret Sykes-Picot Agreement.
On the military side, Gaza and Jaffa fell within days, and Jerusalem was handed over to the British on 9 December.  The publication, on 23 November 1917 and 26 November 1917 in the British Manchester Guardian, on 26 November 1917, was a dramatic moment for the Campaign of the Eastern Allies:  “The British were embarrassed, the Arabs dismayed and the Turks happy.”  The Zionists were aware of the contours of the agreement since April, and in particular the relevant part for Palestine, after Weizmann and Cecil met at a meeting at which Weizmann made clear his objections to the proposed regulation.  These war initiatives, including the declaration, are often viewed jointly by historians because they have actually or imagined the incompatibility between them, particularly with regard to the disposition of Palestine.  In the words of Professor Albert Hourani, founder of the Middle East Centre at St Antony`s College, Oxford: “The argument on the interpretation of these agreements is impossible to put an end to because they should carry more than one interpretation.”  Shortly after his return from Petrograd, Sykes informed Samuel, who informed a meeting of Gaster, Weizmann and Sokolov.
