Musa Kazem Pasha, Arab Executive Head, Dies in Palestine

Musa Kazem Pasha al Husseini, president of the Arab Executive of Palestine, died here today.

The Moslem leader was eighty-five years old. He had been in III health for some time, a condition which prevented his participation in the Arab demonstration last January against continued Jewish immigration into Palestine.

In recent years Musa Kazem Pasha had been known as one of the more moderate leaders and was frequently in opposition to the Grand Mufti and the extremist Nationalists represented by the faction in the Arab Executive, led by Jamal al Husseini.
