Mrs. Roosevelt Criticized for Zionist Sympathies

Mrs. Elias Moghannem, wife of the Palestinian Arab leader, today sent a letter to Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, with whom she is personally acquainted, reproaching America’s First Lady for her sympathies with Zionism. The Letter was written in connection with a scheduled address by Mrs. Roosevelt this fall at a dinner in New York to raise funds for establishment of a Leon Blum colony in Palestine.
