German Radio Promises Jewish Land in Palestine to Arabs

Download PDF for this date

Palestine Arabs were assured today in a broadcast from Berlin that they would be given Jewish possessions in Palestine as soon as a “nationalist government” is established.

Attempting to explain the fact that the number of land transactions in Palestine has remained normal in recent weeks, despite frequent reports on the Axis radio that Palestine Jews were selling their land to Arabs as a result of Rommel’s advance in Egypt, the German tireless stated that the “Revolutionary Committee of Palestine Arabs” has forbidden all Arabs to buy land or other articles from Jews because they will soon be given to them without cost.
