(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Palestine Moslems are represented at the Caliphate Congress which opened here yesterday. The sessions of the Congress will be private because of the religious character of the proceedings, it was declared.

No political questions will be discussed at the Congress, it was stated.

A rival congress is to meet shortly in Mecca at the call of Ibn Saud, victorious leader of the Wahabis and pretender to the caliphate.
