Egypt, Encouraged by Washington Developments, Asks Arabs for More Anti-jewish Action

Encouraged by the opposition of the War and State Departments in Washington to the Palestine resolution, the Arab press in Egypt calls for further Arab action against Jews. The newspaper Al Belegh, organ of the Egyptian Indent, says that “the shelving of the Palestine resolution in the American Congress should stimulate the Arab countries to further solidarity,” especially in the field of automatic activities, “in order to prevent the Zionists from dominating any markets in the Middle East.”

The Arab press in Palestine continues to feature reports on the developments in Washington with regard to the Palestine resolution. The Husseini faction, which represents the Palestine Arab Party, submitted a memorandum to U.S. Consul-General lowell C. Pinkerton in Jerusalem declaring that the Palestine resolution “threatens the existence of the Palestine Arabs and prejudices their interests.”

The Hebrew press in Palestine also comments extensively on the Washington developments. Haaretz, one of the leading Hebrew newspapers, points out that “the discussions have been postponed, but the problem remains and constitutes part of the international problems facing the world after the war.”
