Washington (Sep. 1)
According to an announcement issued by the State Department, 3,313 American citizens reside in Palestine. These figures were announced upon completion of a survey based on reports from Consuls abroad, of American citizens residing in various foreign countries. The figures quoted for Palestine represent a high ratio of the total population of the country, and indicate the large number of American Jews who have settled in Palestine, as relatively few non-Jewish Americans reside there. This figure does not include many additional Jews coming from America who either never adopted American citizenshop or lost it through expatriation on account of prolonged absence from the United States, or adoption of Palestinian citizenship.
