Pan-arab Conference Admits Palestine Delegate; Unexpected Move Causes Sensation

Moussa el Alami, Palestine Arab leader, was authorized today to participate in the pan-Arab Conference now taking place here for the purpose of preparing for a pan-Arab Congress in Cairo in the near future. He originally came as an observer only, since the Arabs in Palestine could not agree on the choice of a joint representative.

The decision to admit the Palestine Arab leader to the conference caused a sensation here since it is known that he does not represent all the Arab political parties in Palestine and in view of the fact that no bona-fide Palestine delegation could be formed because of the dissension among the various Arab groups in Palestine. The sudden decision to admit Moussa el Alami to the conference indicates the importance which the pan-Arab parley attaches to the Palestine problem.
