Times Writer Sees Britain Yielding to Violence

Download PDF for this date

New York Times correspondent Joseph M. Levy reported from Jerusalem on Friday: “There is a strong feeling, especially after the recent Czechoslovak affair, that in Palestine the British Government will yield to violence and tell the Jews that the idea of the Balfour Declaration and a Jewish national home was a mistake that needs drastic revision, just like the Treaty of Versailles.”

The present state of affairs in Palestine is becoming unbearable, both to Jews and Arabs, the dispatch said, with barely 4,000 Arab rebels terrorizing Jews and Arabs alike. Not more than 10,000 Arabs are in agreement with the terroristic activities, but all of the million Arabs are terrorized, it added.
