Rabbi Sonenfeld, a prominent leader of the Orthodox Jews in Palestine, forwarded a letter through Israel De Haan, Jerusalem correspondent of the London Express, to King Hussein asking the Hejas ruler to use his influence in favor of the Yemen Jews who have been much persecuted by the Arabs, it is learned. Hussein, it is said, promised De Haan that he would do everything possible for the Yemenites.
