The party of the Mufti of Jerusalem bolted a meeting of all Arab parties yesterday and called a general strike against the Jews for Tuesday.

The action was taken while delegations of all parties were deliberating on a course of common action and an eventual strike.

The Mufti’s party controls about one-third of the seats in the Arab Executive, representative body of the Palestine Arabs.
