It was worth noting at the outset that after 1936,
a rift happened between Raghib al-Nashashibi and Fakhri. This rift was
not visible. In the ranks of "opposition", there were two,
sharp-witted and intelligent persons: As'ad al-Shuqairi and Fakhri al-Nashashibi.
However, the two of them did not see eye to eye on all matters, sometimes,
they seemed poles apart. Fakhri was a dynamic force. He made it a point
to intercede on behalf of the people with the various government departments
and officials. To Fakhri "homeland" meant his own interest
only. On this point the opposition leaders differed with him. One of
the ill-fated and miscalculated adventures of Fakhri was the issue of
the faked letters he concoted on behalf of Prince Shakib Arsalan. With
the outbreaks of WWII , Fakhri glimpsed another opportunity for a new
adventure that ended him up in Baghdad where he was assassinated.
