Download PDF for this date

The meeting of the Arab Congress Executive is being continued here today.

The question of Palestine interests every Arab the world over, was the statement of Musa Kassim Pasha, president of the Congress, to the correspondent here of the London “Daily News”.

Referring to Dr. Chaim Weizmann’s statement that 1,000 Jewish immigrants will enter Palestine for every Jew killed, the Arab leader declared: “The Arabs can double that number.”

A proposal to send an Arab delegation to London was adopted at yesterday’s session of the Executive which was attended by forty members.

Musa Kassim Pasha, addressing the session, declared: “The time has come for the Arabs of Palestine to act politically as well as strategically.”

A delegation was also to be sent to Sir John Chancellor yesterday to demand withdrawal of his first proclamation.

Hamdi Hussain, reported to be a Communist agitator and considered the chief inspirer of the Communist propaganda disseminated in Palestine in connection with the recent outbreak, was arrested at Jaffa.
