(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The temporary decrease in the volume of Jewish immigration into Palestine is one of the arguments made by the anti-Zionist Palestine Arab Executive in its memorandum which will be submitted to the forthcoming session of the Permanent Mandates Commission.

The correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency here learns that the memorandum of the Palestine Arab Executive expresses the continued opposition of this body to the Zionist policy in Palestine. The decrease in Jewish immigration confirms the contention of the Palestine Arab Executive that the government’s policy in Palestine was wrong, it argues.

The memorandum further complains that the recommendations made by the Permanent Mandates Commission with regard to the situation in Palestine were not carried out by the Palestine government; that the number of British officials in the country has been increased; that legislative institutions have not been established.

The Executive also takes up the recent dispute between Arab villagers and the Palestine Jewish Colonization Association with regard to the land in Caesarea. The Palestine Arab Executive complains that in this dispute the Palestine government acted contrary to the instructions of the British Colonial office.
