In an article published in June 1930, Muhammad  Roshan  Akhtar,  the editor of the English edition of the Palestinian newspaper Filastin, called for the establishment of an Arab federation, considering Jews to be an integral part of a political community whose territory sprawled “from Basra to  Jaffa.”  Akhtar’s  article  met  with an enthusiastic response from Jewish author and essayist Yehoshua Radler- Feldman (also known as R. Binyamin). RB considered the large space between Basra  and  Jaffa  –  intended  to  serve as the basis for the anti-colonial unification of the Arab lands – as a basis for a different thinking about Jewish existence   in   Palestine   particularly and  in  the  Middle  East  generally. He foresaw an existence of Jewish masses dispersed throughout the whole region, where the old Middle Eastern Jewish communities would play an important  role.  This  article  focuses on the crystallization of RB’s spatial perception in the period of the British Mandate, the importance he saw in the identification with the anti-colonial struggle,  and  the  affinities  between this orientation and the attitudes held by Palestinians intellectuals and political activists. It also examines the theological perception of Eretz Yisrael and the “lands that are adjacent to it” that lay at the foundations of the spatial logic  RB  developed.
