Download PDF for this date

Amnesty for the 3 Safed Arabs sentenced to death for the murder of Isaac Mamaan during the attack on Safed was asked of King George in a cablegram despatched following a meeting of Moslems held in the Mosque on Sunday. The proposed Arab strike on Sunday against the death sentences was not held. The strike has been postponed until the 24th. it is reported, when the members of the Commission of Inquiry are due to arrive.

In Safed most Moslem shops were closed on Sunday and some still remain closed as an expression of protest at the sentence. Many shopkeepers are reported carrying on surreptitious trade through the back doors of their shops. Quiet prevails in the city.
