Jewish Journalists, Government Officials, Unwanted at Arab Show

Download PDF for this date

No Jewish journalists, not even the editor of the Palestine Post or the Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent, have been invited to attend the Arabian exhibition which opened here two days ago. A Jewish journalist who tried to “crash” the exhibition was caught and forcibly expelled.

The Arabs did not even invite officials of the Palestine government or the Jerusalem municipality to their exhibition. This was understood here to be a subtle Arabian way of showing their spirit of non-cooperation
