Holy Land Excludes Alien Newspapers

Download PDF for this date

The Palestine government has adopted a regular policy of prohibiting foreign Jewish newspapers from being sold in the Holy Land.

Authorities today prohibited The Moment of Kaunas, Lithuania, for a full year. Unzer Zeit of Kishinev, Rumania, was banned recently.

Government censorship of foreign Jewish papers coming here has evoked wide comment.
