Blames Political Aims of Zionists for Riots

Download PDF for this date

Blaming the aim of the Zionists for political domination over Palestine, despite the fact that the Jews constitute only a minority of the population, as being responsible for the recent outbreaks of violence, Professor A. E. Prince of Queens University, Ontario, speaking at a meeting of the Foreign Policy Association Saturday, expressed the hope that the Jews might make a “Beau Geste” and give up their political power and the Arabs meeting them half way would establish peace in the land from whence came the Prince of Peace.

Answering Professor Prince’s charges, Maurice Samuel pointed out that the Jews were seeking political control over a mere 9,000 square miles of territory out of a total Arabian empire of 1,300,000. Samuel also declared that the Palestinian problems affect not merely the comparative handful of Jews in Palestine but millions of Jews all over the world.
