In early Feb. 1917, two men met in a hallway of the British GHQ in Cairo and took an instant dislike to one another. One was a Jewish agronomist from Palestine named Aaron Aaronsohn; the other, a young 2nd lieutenant from Oxfordshire, an archaeologist named T.E. Lawrence. Each was cocksure of his expertise on Palestine and dreamed of creating a new nation from the ashes of the faltering Ottoman empire. Even as one shored up support for Zionist goals among the powerful in Britain and America and shaped the map of a future Jewish Palestine, the other battled for recognition of the Arab cause. Their fierce and acrimonious arguments in wartime Cairo and at the Paris Peace Conference presaged the political battles of the Middle East today. Photos.
