Organ of Grand Mufti Charges Chancellor’s Resignation is Due to Zionist “intrigue”

The resignation of Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner of Palestine, is due to a Zionist intrigue, declares Aljamea al Arabia, semi-official organ of the Grand Mufti, today. The paper claims that High Commissioner Chancellor realized that the Palestine post was difficult for an administrator wishing to do justice.

Chancellor, the Arab paper adds, showed an inclination for justice and “therefore the Jews organized an intrigue against him.”
