Executive Lauds Arab Boycott in Jaffa

Download PDF for this date

The Arab Executive has telegraphed its thanks to the Jaffa municipality for its decision to boycott the Rutenberg Electric Works.

The streets of Jaffa, chiefly an Arab municipality, are now being lighted by gas in accordance with a decision to boycott the Rutenberg Electric Company, headed by Pincus Rutenberg, chairman of the Vaad Leumi, National Council of Palestine Jews.

Officers of the Moslem youth club of Gaza have been arraigned for violation of the new promulgated Seditious Acts Law. They are charged with distributing a boycott circular.

Since the anti-Jewish boycott was started two months ago by the Arabs, more than fifteen Arab shops have been opened in Jerusalem.
