This page is being built as a resource of historical source documents that have had significant effects on the course of modern Middle Eastern history. We have broken this list down into manageable historical sections and included some of the pre-Mandate documents that became part of the formation of Zionism as a force within the European and Russian Jewish community. We are building this resource as quickly as possible – bear with us!
