Holy Land Watches Plans for Constitutional Changes in Neighboring Lands

Download PDF for this date

Agitation concerning the constitutional changes in neighboring territories are being eagerly followed in Palestine. The prospect in Syria, where the leaders of all political parties agreed at an all-party conference, to decide at the earliest moment what attitude to take towards the French offer of a constitution is being watched with particular interest. The French offered a constitution with reservations concerning France’s international obligations as the mandatory power.

Simultaneously in Transjordania the opposition, a self-styled national congress, has just adopted a resolution urging non-recognition of the legislative assembly and of the acts it passed, thereby demanding a newly constituted constitutional government.
