Jerusalem (Mar. 28)
No one offered to negotiate with Dr. Weizmann and so far as it knows no Arab approached the Zionists for negotiations, declares the Arab paper “Felestin,” in commenting on Dr. Weizmann’s speech at the meeting of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency, in which he declared that the Jews would not negotiate with the Arabs until the latter recognized the right of the Jews to build a national home in Palestine.
The “Felestin” says: “Perhaps the Colonial Office intimated to Dr. Weizmann to start negotiations with the Arabs and he refused with Jewish insolence. The Jews rely on haganah (self defence) and the Brith Trumpeldor to smuggle in arms and prepare for new disturbances….We already see in the horizon a Jewish blood conspiracy.”
