Hussein Exhorts Arabs to Be Patient

Download PDF for this date

The Executive Committee of the Moslem-Christian Union announces the receipt of a letter from King Hussein of Hejjaz in which he declares he will not sign the British Arab protocol unless Great Britain agrees to nullify the Balfour Declaration.

The letter concludes with an appeal to the Arabs to have patience and confidence in him. (Hussein was recently the object of attack by Arab leaders because of his previous approval of the draft treaty excluding Palestine from the zone of Arab influence.)
