Download PDF for this date

Five thousand Jews attended a huge mass meeting here in protest against the Arab atrocities in Palestine.

Addresses were delivered by Ornstein and Lowenherz, a member of the Jewish Agency Council, who described the sacrifices of the Yishub, urging a similar spirit of sacrifice be displayed by the Jews in the Disapora. The Chalutz was described as the unknown soldier. The speakers expressed their confidence in the good faith of Great Britain, Lord Balfour and Viscount Cecil.

In a resolution adopted, the meeting expressed its deep indignation at the events which have transpired in Palestine and demanded the Jewish right of access to the Wailing Wall be safeguarded.
