(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The possibility of a united Arab front in Palestine, including both Moslems and Christians, loomed large today when it was reported that a new move was under way to secure the participation of Christian Arabs in the forthcoming Arab Congress.

The Christian Arabs who had intended to create a separate organization and not participate in the forthcoming Congress have reached an agreement with the Hasseini group, it was reported. By this agreement, Moslems and Christian Arabs will join in the Congress to be held here next week.
