Parley with Thomas on Council Sought by Jews

The British Colonial Office’s invitation to Arab leaders to send a delegation to London for a discussion of the proposed Palestine legislative council has prompted Hebrew newspapers to demand that a similar Jewish delegation be invited.

The six Arabs will be received in London May 4, it was disclosed here. They will probably include Ragheb Bey Nashashibi, head of the Arab National Defense Party; Jamal el Husseni, President of the Palestine Arab Party; Jacoub el Khussein, president of the Arab Youth Congress Party; Dr. Hussein Khalidi, mayor of Jerusalem, and Alfred Rock, of the Arab Christian group.
