Arab Masses Bettered by Jews in Palestine, Says Women’s Leader

Download PDF for this date

Since the pioneer settlement of the Jewish National Home in Palestine fifty years ago, the lot of the Arab masses has been bettered by new methods of agriculture, improvements in sanitation methods and by advances in education. These developments were pointed out by Mrs. Goldic Meyerson, secretary of the Pioneer Women’s organization, at a special lecture at the University of Minnesota here.

Speaking of Jewish immigration into Palestine and its effect upon the Arab population, Mrs. Meyerson stated that the conviction of officials of the Zionist movement is that there is room in Palestine for both races.

“We Jews are determined to do nothing that will injure the freedom and happiness of any other group,” she asserted.

That the Arab masses do not resent the invasion of Jews was shown in several instances cited by the speaker.
