A telegram bearing the signatures of Arab youths in Kerek, Transjordania, which threatens an invasion unless the tide of Jewish immigration is stemmed, was published in “Falastin”, Arabic daily here.

The message reads:

“Not even the Jordan will stop us from crossing into Palestine to assist our brethren there unless Zionist immigration is stopped.”
