Representatives of thirty Jewish societies met here at the call of H. Slatapolsky and Yvonne Netter to protest the Arab atrocities. Resolutions were adopted in which tribute was paid to the Jews defending their rights and to Christians who helped defend the Jews. The resolutions condemned the shortsighted policy of the administration in failing to foresee the events; demanded punishment of the guilty, and reparation for loss of life and property. They advised the Arabs to be reasonable without provocation and demanded that the British government execute the terms of the Mandate. A copy of the resolutions was forwarded to Great Britain and the Leagu of Nations.
