Drive on Terrorism, Peel’s Death Seen Holding Up New Commission

DELAY IN SENDING A SECOND COMMISSION TO PALESTINE, AUTHORIZED TO NEGOTIATE A DETAILED PARTITION PLAN, WAS ATTRIBUTED BY THE MANCHESTER GUARDIAN TODAY TO THE GOVERNMENT’S CONCENTRATION ON STAMPING OUT TERRORISM IN THE HOLY LAND AND TO THE DEATH OF LORD PEEL, WHO HAD BEEN DEFINITELY EXPECTED TO SERVE ON THE NEW BODY.

DECLARING THE COMMISSION, WHOSE MEMBERS HAVE NOT YET BEEN APPOINTED, WOULD NOT LEAVE FOR SOME TIME YET, THE NEWSPAPER SAID THAT NO TIME WAS BEING LOST SINCE IMPORTANT DATA IS BEING PREPARED FOR THE COMMISSION IN THE MEANTIME.

PUNITIVE MEASURES AGAINST THE ARAB LEADERS STUNNED THE ARAB PEOPLE, ACCORDING TO THE GUARDIAN, BUT DID NOT CREATE RESENTMENT.

“AMONG RESPONSIBLE ARABS,” THE PAPER STATES, “THE MEASURES WERE NOT UNWELCOME, WHILE ARAB COMMERCIAL QUARTERS POSITIVELY APPROVED. TO THE JEWS, THE MEASURES BROUGHT WIDESPREAD RELIEF.”
