Arab Parties Quarrel over Leadership Issue

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency Mail Service)

The question of responsibility for the dissension among the Arab parties is the subject of controversy in the Arab press here.

The “Falastin,” which voices the views of the Palestine Arab Executive, and the “Al Carmel” which represents the Arab opposition camp, take up the cudgels on behalf of their respective parties.

Jamal Al-Husseini, replying to critics of the Arab Executive, in an article in “Falastin” says that the Executive was ready to accept all ways to reach a truce and that contrary to the current reports Musa Kazem Pasha Al-Husseini is not willing to accept the leadership of the Executive after the meeting of the Palestine Arab Congress, but is ready to relinquish it following the elections. Jamal Al-Husseini is willing to relinquish the secretaryship of the Executive to any member of the Opposition who is nominated. The path of the Executive is not strewn with roses, he adds. He is quite ready that Negib Nassar, editor of “Al Carmel,” should take on the secretaryship.
