Palestine Moslems Stay Away from Christmas Trees

Download PDF for this date

As a result of the dispute over rights to a cemetery here that has been going on for some time between Christians and Moslems, the Moslems this year largely abandoned their good-will custom of visiting Christian Christmas celebrations. The cemetery dispute led to several clashes, in one of which, last September, a Christian-Arab was killed.
