Strife on Stand of Arabs Seen by Jabotinsky

Download PDF for this date

Vladimir Jabotinsky, leader of the Zionist Revisionists, today addressed a letter to Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister, British Secretary of State for Colonies, pointing out that peace in Palestine had been endangered by the action of the Palestine government in permitting civilians to attempt to stop illegal Jewish immigration into the Holy Land.

The letter will be sent to the League of Nations in order to place on record Mr. Jabotinsky’s warning of the grave consequences to be expected from the action of the Palestine government, it was announced.

Palestinian Arabs have organized volunteer patrols which guard the frontiers of Palestine to prevent Jewish immigrants from entering the country illegally and turn over to the police all illegal immigrants they detect.

Late last Friday a serious clash took place at Nathania, a Jewish colony, when a group of Arabs dressed as scouts passed through the village on their way to the seashore to guard against the illegal landing of Jewish immigrants. One Arab was injured in the fight between the Jews and the Arabs.
