Download PDF for this date

Issa Bendak, editor of the Christian-Arab paper Sout Aschaab published in Bethlehem, and one of the Arab delegation to the United States with Emir Ardel Arslan, officially reported today that the delegation’s mission had been a financial failure. Emir Arslan, the chairman of the delegation, is now in Germany. The delegation came to the United States last Spring on behalf of the Grand Mufti’s party to raise funds and propagandize the Arab cause.
