Shertok's basic philosophical assumption was that politics constituted a continuous process of incremental change rather than a series of single idiosyncratic leaps forward or irreversible retreats. Therefore, while continuing Arlosoroff's effort to discuss with both British and Arabs long-term interests and relations, he would emphasize the importance of ceaseless negotiations concerning gradual modifications in British policy as well as in Arab positions towards the Yishuv. Thus, he would continue to conduct a ‘trench war’ with the British on immigration, land purchase, and settlement, and launch a carefully measured propaganda campaign at the Arabs, aimed at imparting the notion that the Yishuv was ready to reach agreement with them.
