Jerusalem (Mar. 1)
King Fuad of Egypt may visit Palestine within the next two months, according to a Cairo report received here describing His Majesty’s gratification at the welcome accorded in Palestine to his Prime Minister, Ismael Sidky Pasha. Should the King undertake the visit to Palestine, Sidky Pasha would accompany his Sovereign on a tour of the two Mandated territories, Palestine and Syria.
It is also reported from Cairo that Ibrahim Dassouqui Abbazza, a member of the Egyptian Chamber, has put an interpellation to the Prime Minister as to the “real reasons” for the Prime Minister’s recent visit to Palestine and Syria, and asking what truth there is in the rumour that the visit was connected with the ceding by Egypt of territory in favour of Palestine; and if the Premier’s mission had in some way been connected with the Caliphate question or the crowning of the ex-Khedive as King of Palestine.
