London (May. 31)
Doubt as to whether the Palestine issue “can long be delayed” was expressed here today by the Manchester Guardian in an article commenting on the French-Arah conflict in Syria.
Although the election campaign may distract attention from the Palestine problem, the issue is essentially one that cannot and should not be handled by secret diplomacy, the paper says. “Nor can the Palestine problem be measured or judged by cenventional terms, for the simple reason that its humanitarian aspect far transcends the political,” the article continues.
