Arabs-moslem or Christian Are Our Brothers Mr. Dizengoff Mayor of Tel Aviv Says: Declares “felestin’

The Arabs, whether Moslem or Christian, are our brothers, and when I speak of enemies I mean also those Jews who are trying to make us quarrel, in the same way as the “Felestin” is doing, Mr. Mayer Dizengoff, the Mayor of Tel Aviv, writes in a reply to a warning issued to the Arab population by the Palestine Arab Executive, to take no part in the celebrations now being held in honour of Mr. Dizengoff’s 70th. birthday. The Zionists will exploit any Arab participation in the celebrations for propaganda purposes, the Palestine Arab Executive said, in its statement. Mr. Dizengoff’s reference to “enemies” is intended to correct the impression created by the “Felestin”, which, in reporting his speech welcoming Dr. Weizmann to Tel Aviv, made him say that the Arabs were enemies.
