Download PDF for this date

Demanding that Arabs stop selling their land to the Jews, the Grand Mufti, Moslem religious leader, today started on a propaganda tour throughout Palestine.

Addressing several thousand Arabs assembled to hear him at the Nablus Mosque, the Grand Mufti vigorously assailed those who sell their land to Jews. In selling to Jews, he warned, the Arabs “are strengthening their enemies.”
