A NEW CENTER OF PALESTINE ARAB POLITICAL ACTIVITY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED IN BAGHDAD, IRAQ, IT WAS LEARNED HERE TODAY, BY ARAB LEADERS WHO FLED FROM PALESTINE BEFORE A BRITISH DRIVE ON TERRORISTS AND AGITATORS.

THE CENTER IS HEADED BY JAMAL EL HUSSEINI, LEADER OF THE PALESTINE ARAB PARTY AND NEPHEW OF THE DEPOSED GRAND MUFTI, AND IZZAT DARWAZE, THE MUFTI’S RIGHT-HAND MAN.

COINCIDENT WITH ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CENTER, REPORTS FROM ARAB COUNTRIES BORDERING ON PALESTINE SHOW GREAT INTENSIFICATION OF PROPAGANDA SEEKING ACTIVE INTERVENTION IN PALESTINE AFFAIRS.
