Christian Clergymen Ask Roosevelt to Disapprove Anti – Jewish Statements of Arab Leaders

A delegation representing 5,000 Christian clergymen who, on March 14, petitioned President Roosevelt to open the gates of Palestine to Jewish immigration today visited the White House, asking the President to voice disapproval of the anti – Jewish statements recently made by Sheik Youssof Yusin, advisor to Ion Saud, and other Arab leaders. The Christian delegation said: “In our view these Arab leaders are carrying over their wartime pro – Nazism into a post – war pro – Nazism.”
