Download PDF for this date

Moslem Arabs, in an attempt to block the granting of the concession to exploit the salts of the Dead Sea to Engineer Moses Novomejsky, sent cabled protests to the British Colonial Office today.

The Moslem Supreme Council and the Arab Executive despatched their protest in consequence of Major Orms-by-Gore’s latest statement in the House of Commons.
