Arab Members Reenter Advisory Council

Download PDF for this date

The probability of cooperation between Jew and Arab, and between the Arab spokesmen and the Government now loom larger than ever before, following the withdrawal of their resignations by the six Arab members of the Advisory Council.

The Arabs’ declination to serve on the Council was part of the political sabotage inaugurated by the Arab Executive immediately following the cancellation of the Legislative Council. Since then, Sir Gilbert Clayton, the Civil Secretary and Acting High Commissioner, has been urging the Arab members to reconsider their decision. The Jewish members, too, joined in the successful effort to prevail on their Arab colleagues to serve.
