Colonial Office to Take Vigorous Steps to Restore Peace in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

The British Colonial Office has taken under consideration the situation in Jerusalem which arose because of the renewed attacks on Jewish worshippers at the Wailing Wall and at various points in Jerusalem as a result of the controversy between the Moslems and the Jews at the Wailing Wall.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency was informed on the basis of good authority that the Colonial Office will take energetic steps to re-establish peace in Jerusalem.

Members of the Jewish Agency Council, including non-Zionists, have taken a definite stand on the matter and demand that the Palestine government punish the offending Arabs. They take particular exception to the tone of the official statement issued Sunday by the Palestine government.

Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner of Palestine, who was on vacation in London, will return to Jerusalem early next week.

Col. Frederick H. Kisch is keeping in constant touch with the Colonial Office on the matter.
