Nazi Handbills Openly Spread in Jerusalem

Download PDF for this date

Nazis today for the first time distributed anti-Jewish leaflets in Arabic and English through the streets of Jerusalem, calling for a boycott of Jewish trade.

“Every cent which goes into a Jewish pocket is a nail in the coffin of an Arab,” the Nazi leaflets stated.

The Palestine government, it is expected, will start an investigation into the origin of these leaflets.

While the Nazis were calling upon the Arabs to boycott Jewish business, the Arab Association of Orange Planters in the Gaza district today joined hands with the Jewish Farmers Association in protesting against the Palestine government’s plan to introduce a special high tax for new orange groves, in order to discourage the cultivation of new plantations.

In a memorandum which the Arab planters of the Gaza district submitted today to the High Commissioner of Palestine, they declared that the introduction of the contemplated tax is unjustified and will injure the welfare of the country.

The aim of the Palestine government in introducing a special tax on new orange groves is to prevent a crisis in the citrus industry in Palestine. The authorities here believe that the citrus industry has reached its highest point and should not be developed any further, since the market for Palestine oranges abroad is very limited.
