Report Jews, Italians Stoned Turk Consulate at Island of Rhodes

Rumors are being spread in Turkey that on the island of Rhodes, Aegean Sea possession of Italy, Jews and Italians threw stones at the Turkish consulate, the London Daily Telegraph reported today in a dispatch from Istanbul. Turkish leaders are apprehensive that this alleged demonstration by Jews may lead to a resumption of attacks against the Jews in Turkey.

Recently thousands of Jews were forced to leave Turkish Thrace after Turkish anti-Semites attacked the Jews in a series of pogroms. The refugees crowded into Istanbul, where most of them are at present afraid to go back to their homes.
