“The Russian emigres cannot forgive the Jews for taking part in the Soviet Government and for having ruined Russia,” declared M. Boris Suvorin notorious Russian anti-Semite, son of the publisher of the Petrograd anti-Semitic daily, “Novoye Vremya.” Suvorin, who has just arrived here, stated in an interview with press representatives that “as soon as Russia is free again. a violent anti-Semitic tide will break out, as the hearts of the exiled Russian emigres are boiling over with hatted of the Jews.

“It is no use saying that the Jews were not responsible for the actions of the Communists in Russia,” Suvorin continued, “just as it cannot he claimed that Russia was not responsible for Count Pleve’s action because he was not of Russian origin. It is true that the Czarist Government had committed many flacrant mistakes in its treatment of the Jews.” Suvorin declared. During the war he had himself witnessed the haroism and patriotism of the Russian Jews and one of his best friends was a Jewish sub-lieurenant.

“The murder of Patlura.” Suvorin concluded. “has made a deep impression on all the Russian emigres who now go about in continual fear of their lives.”

Imports into Palestine during the first months of 1926 came principally from Egypt, Syria, Germany and the United Kingdom. Exports went to England. Egypt, England, and Syria received 53% of the entire amount. It is to be noted that in general the first half-year accounts for two-thirds and the second only for one-third of Palestine exports.
