Download PDF for this date

Pro-Arab circles today were making arrangements to have members of Parliament meet with the unofficial Arab delegation which is scheduled to arrive here from Palestine tomorrow.

The delegation, comprising both Arab Moslem and Christian leaders, has as its primary purpose creation of a favorable opinion of the Arab cause in official quarters and among the public, to which end it is expected to launch an intensive propaganda drive. Dr. Izzat Tannous, prominent Arab Christian leader, and Jamal Husseini, nephew of the Grand Mufti, are among the delegates.

The Arabs will visit Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow and other large population centers.

Arab circles state definitely that the delegation will not conduct negotiations of any kind with the Government.
