Arabs Open Boycott Drive in Palestine

A new Arab offensive against the Jews, on an entirely new front, opened here today when the recently created Arab Labor Federation decided to picket Jewish enterprises and to conduct an anti-Jewish boycott.

The reason this action was decided upon, Arab leader stated, “is because Jews picket places where Arab workers are employed and owing to other anti-Arab activities carried on by Jews.”

An Arab delegation interviewed the District Commisisoner of Jaffa complaining of Jewish picketing activities. They were informed that the Palestine government is giving the matter consideration.

Jewish groups in Palestine, acting on a united policy, have consistently picketed Jewish enterprises which employ Arab labor in preference to Jewish workers.

Formation of the Arab Labor Federation was forecast in dispatches from Rome, which stated that the new organization was being organized on strictly Fascist principles.
