(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Yemen, the country of anti-Jewish persecutions, in Arabia, is not satisfied with its internal policy toward the Jews but also objects to their emigrating to Palestine, according to reports to the Arab paper, “Al Carmel.”

According to these reports, the government of Yemen has issued an ordinance to confiscate the property of all Yemenite Jews who emigrate to Palestine.
