South African Minister Tells United Nations to Ignore Arab Sabre Rattling in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Urging Britain to do justice to the Jews in Palestine, Minister of Justice Colin Steyn last night urged the United Nations not to be intimidated by “Arab sabre rattling.”

Doing justice to the Jews, said Dr. Steyn, is the acid test of whether it is possible for the world to solve the problems of mankind. The Jewish right to settle on the land of their fathers is unquestioned, he added. If the obligations to the Jews are not kept, the Minister stressed, all of the Allies must share the blame.
