Egypt Will Take Census of All Foreign Jews in Connection with Moyne Murder

Egyptian authorities will shortly take a census of all Jews who have arrived here recently, it was reported here today. They will be asked to inform the authorities where they are living and working.

It is believed that the census is being contemplated in connection with the assassination here, last week, of Lord Moyne, British Resident Minister in the Middle East, by two Jews who came here from Palestine.

In an interview broadcast by the Cairo radio, the premier of Iraq, Hemdy El Pachaji Preel-Mida, assured the Arabs of Palestine that the neighboring Arab states would shortly take steps to aid them. Among the steps he outlined were; Establishment of an Arab propaganda bureau in Britain and America, financial backing to prevent the sale of Arab lands to Jews, and “establishment of strong diplomatic protection for the Arabs of Palestine.”
