(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Palestine Arab Executive, responsible for the anti-Zionist propaganda among Palestine Arabs, was promised the support of the Communist party of Great Britain. in a letter addressed by the Executive Committee to the Palestine Arab Executive.

The communication offers “the whole hearted help of the British Communist party in the great historic mission of establishing a united workers and peasants republic in the Near East from Morocco to Syria.”

The executive of the Communist party states that while the Palestine Arabs loyally fought for the Allies against Turkey when they were promised full independence in return for their assistance. “Great Britain has treacherously betrayed them by establishing Palestine as the national home for the Jewish people under an imposed British mandate.” The letter contrasts this policy with the policy of the Soviet government, which gave the people of the Caucasian countries full independence within the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics.
