Catholics Upset by “jewish Invasion” and “english-protestant Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

The so-called “invasion of Jews” into Palestine and the “English Protestant” propaganda is causing grave anxiety in Catholc circles, as will be seen from the following official statement appearing recently in the Catholic newspapers here:

“In connection with the Peace of Lausanne, Catholic circles are following the position in Palestine with particular interest. Anxiety is caused not only by the invasion of Jews but also by the English Protestant propaganda which is being conducted with the aid of large financial means. The Catholcs of the Holy Land are thus finding themselves placed between two fires – the Jewish and the Protestant.

“The problem has been thoroughly examined these last few days by leading circles of the Holy See, and in agreement with the Latin Patriarch and the Franciscans in the Holy Land, it is now intended that no means should be left unused in order to protect the interests of Catholicism both now and in the future.”
