Pamphlet Gives Details of Palestine Communist Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

Details of the widespread Communist propaganda in Palestine, its repercussions, especially among the Arabs and a description of the organization of the hunger strike among the 88 political prisoners in Palestine, most of whom are Communists, are given in a 24-page pamphlet called “At the Front” and distributed here by the central committee of the Palestine Communist Youth League.

The pamphlet also contains a report of the recent plenary session of the Palestine Communist Youth League and emphasizes that for the first time the Arabs played a part not as guests but as responsible partners. The pamphlet also discussed “the August revolt,” as the disturbances of last year are called. Special attention was paid at the plenary meeting, according to the pamphlet, to the instructions of the Communist International to Arabize the country for which purpose “Bolshevism is the best guarantee by means of strengthened discipline and devotion among the Arab comrades.”

Resolutions adopted at the meeting called for the Arabization of the Youth League. The pamphlet contains a special article entitled “June 17, The Day of Imperialistic Murder,” referring to the execution of three Arabs for their part in the August riots.
