Anti-zionist Press of London Opens Systematic Campaign to Influence Inquiry Commission

Download PDF for this date

With an apparent desire of influencing the Palestine Inquiry Commission, whose members recently returned here, prior to the publication of its report, the anti-Zionist London press has begun a systematic attack on the Zionists. An attack on Zionism seems to be a daily feature in the “Daily Mail” while the notoriously anti-Semitic “Morning Post,” which has been rather silent of late, yesterday devoted a column editorial to the Palestine question and also an article asking by “what process of logic does Great Britain refuse Palestine self-government, something which it granted Egypt and is considering granting to India?

“Is it more important to protect a foreign minority in Palestine than in India and Egypt? The policy of the Balfour Declaration is working mischief to both Jews and Arabs and is undoing the credit of the British name.”

The “Daily Telegraph” devotes prominent position to an article by Rosita Forbes entitled “The Price of Peace in Palestine.” This article is significant in that not only in its construction but even in style and in an almost exact wording of speech it is like the one recently delivered by Jamal Husseini, secretary of the Arab Executive, during a debate with the Rev. A. Perlzweig which seems to indicate that there is an organization behind the Arab propaganda in London.
