Report Foreign Source Financing Arab Revolt

Download PDF for this date

The Jerusalem correspondent of The Times charged today that a foreign source was financing the Arab rebellion.

Reporting that previously money for arms was raised from Palestine and neighboring Arab lands, the despatch said:

“Now there are fresh supplies of money larger than can be expected of the now impoverished Arabs, even under threats. It seems likely that some foreign source has really been tapped.”
