Says England Will Issue New Policy on Palestine Soon

Download PDF for this date

“We may expect from the British government the formulation of a new policy in Palestine based not merely on the forthcoming report of Sir John Simpson but on the study of the whole matter to be made by Dr. Drummond Shiels on his visit to Palestine,” says the “New Statesman.” The paper also points out that “what the Jews and Arabs mean to do next is also important, because on them more than on us, the hopes for making a Palestinian nation depend.”

The Liberal weekly, “The Nation,” commenting on the Mandates Commission’s report declares, “It is highly salutary that our membership be impartially surveyed by men of Lord Lugard’s calibre and experience, and we will make ourselves ridiculous if we are unable to bear their measured criticisms and suggestions without the official outburst of indignation echoed with megaphones in certain sections of the British press.”
