Wailing Wall Question Brought Before League Mandates Commission

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Memorande on the question of the Jewish right of access to the Wailing Wall and the recent interference there with Jewish worshipers were despatched by the Jerusalem Zionist Executive and the Vaad Leumi, National Council of Palestine Jews to the Mandates Commission of the League of Nations which opens at sessions in Geneva today.

An appeal, calling for peace between Arabs and Jews, on the Wailing Wall question was published by Mr. Kalverisky in “Al Jamea,” organ of the Moslem Supreme Council. The appeal urges that there should be no quarrel over such a simple question.

The all-Palestine conference called by the Moslem Supreme Council to consider the question of the Wailing Wall will be held next Sunday. The agenda includes a discussion of a fund collection to build a mosque at the Wall.
