Ibn Djavri had an audience yesterday with Sir Eric Drummond, secretary-general of the League of Nations, and protested on behalf of the Palestine Arabs about the present situation in Palestine and demanded the right of self-determination. He submitted a memorandum signed by himself and Emer El Arslan asking whether the Zionists are ready to give up the Mandate and renounce the hope of a majority in Palestine.
