Moslem Opposition to Grand Mufti Takes a Hand: Opposition Meeting Arranged in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

The opposition among the Palestine Moslems to the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem has crystallised sufficiently to influence the leaders to call a meeting for to-morrow (Friday) afternoon, at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, at which an attendance of about 400 is expected.

Fakri Nashashibi, one of the prime movers in the opposition movement, is now engaged in drawing up the agenda, he informed the J.T.A. to-night.

No members of the Moslem World Conference, which is now meeting in Jerusalem, have been invited officially to the gathering, but some have been expected to attend. The Grand Mufti, however, has arranged a luncheon for the delegates to be held to-morrow in an orange grove near the Jewish colony of Neos Ziona, so that it will be impossible for them to be in Jerusalem in time for the Conference.
