Download PDF for this date

A decision to petition the Government to help bring about Arab-Jewish friendly relations was made at a meeting of Arab and Jewish notables held at Nazareth, according to reports in the Arabic press today. The meeting also decided, it is said, to ask the Government to oppose the Arab Executive and the Supreme Moslem Council.

“Meraat Al Shark” reports that the Jews present assigned £50,000 to be expended on arranging Arab petitions and submitting them to Dr. Drummond Shiels.
