Palestine Mourns Death of Feisal, Iraq Monarch

Download PDF for this date

Jews and Arabs united this week-end to mourn the death of King Feisal of Iraq. Arab buildings, motor cars and busses are carrying black flags and the newspapers have a black border. All the Hebrew papers carried lengthy tributes to the dead monarch and gave much space to the memorial services for the King held at the mosques in Jerusalem. Genuine grief over the death of King Feisal is universal in Palestine.
