Italian Agents Back Arab Strike with Money, Herald Reports

The Daily Herald’s correspondent in Jerusalem reports today that Italian agents are contributing large sums of money to support the Arab general strike, now in its fourth week.

According to the correspondent, Arabs are receiving numerous remittances from Italian interests working through Syrian sympathizers. He asserts that the last payment was for 15,000 (approximately $25,000). Bedouins, the writer alleges, have been promised about $15 daily plus their food and all the loot they can get in attacks on Palestine Jews.
