Mufti Warns England of Finish Fight with Moslems

THE GRAND MUFTI OF JERUSALEM, HAJ AMIN EL HUSSEINI, INTERVIEWED TONIGHT BY A NEAR EAST CORRESPONDENT OF THE PARIS SOIR, WARNED ENGLAND AGAINST “INVOLVING ITSELF TO THE DEATH” WITH THE ARAB-MOSLEM WORLD, AND DECLARED THE ARABS WILL NEVER COMPROMISE IN THEIR OPPOSITION TO JEWS IN PALESTINE, THE HAVAS NEWS AGENCY REPORTED.

HAJ AMIN REPORTEDLY TOOK THE ATTITUDE THAT BRITISH PROMISES TO ESTABLISH A JEWISH HOMELAND IN PALESTINE COULD NOT BE CARRIED OUT BECAUSE THE COUNTRY BELONGS TO THE ARABS.

“WE ALONE HAVE BEEN MASTERS OF THIS COUNTRY FOR 13 CENTURIES, ” THE GRAND MUFTI IS QUOTED AS HAVING SAID. “WE INTEND TO REMAIN SO. NO COMPROMISE SOLUTION WILL SATISFY US.

“NOTHING WILL DO BUT COMPLETE INDEPENDENCE, WHICH WOULD PERMIT US TO END THE INVASION BY ZIONISTS, WHO NOT ONLY CLAIM THE RIGHT TO INSTALL THEMSELVES ON OUR LANDS, BUT DESTROY OUR MOSQUES AND HOLY PLACES!

“ENGLAND’S PROMISES TO THE JEWS DO NOT INTEREST US. ENGLAND COULD NOT PROMISE THEM SOMETHING SHE DOES NOT OWN — OUR COUNTRY!

“BUT LET THE ENGLISH BE ON THEIR GUARD. THE POLICY THEY ARE FOLLOWING IN PALESTINE IS ALIENATING THE SYMPATHIES NOT ONLY OF THE ARABS OF PALESTINE BUT OF ALL COUNTRIES OF ARAB RACE AND OF THE ENTIRE MOSLEM WORLD.”
