Strike or No Strike on Palestine Day Next Week: Another Clash Between Arab Executive and Grand Mufti

Download PDF for this date

The observance of Palestine Day on May 16th. will not involve any stoppage of work, the Administrative Committee of the Palestine Arab Executive announces, in urging Moslem attendance at the Mosques on that day.

The Grand Mufti’s organ “El Jamea el Arabia”, on the other hand, urges a strike, and a similar attitude is taken by the Young Men’s Moslem Association.
