LE JOURNAL, IN A LEADING ARTICLE, TERMED THE MUFTI “A TROUBLESOME PEST” AND WARNED THAT THE PRESENCE OF SO MANY PALESTINE REBELS IN SYRIA CONSTITUTED A MENACE TO SYRIA’S SECURITY. LE TEMPS DECLARED RECENT REPRESSIVE MEASURES AGAINST ARAB AGITATORS IN PALESTINE MADE A GOOD IMPRESSION ON JEWISH AND PEACEFUL ARAB CIRCLES, ADDING THAT THE MUFTI’S FLIGHT WOULD GREATLY FACILITATE THE PALESTINE GOVERNMENT’S PACIFYING TACTICS.
