Palestine Censorship Suppresses Jewish Telegraphic Agency Cables from New York

The Palestine censorship has barred publication in the local Hebrew press of two Jewish Telegraphic Agency dispatches from New York.

One of the censored items was a statement by Don Pines, co-editor of Davar, largest Hebrew daily, who is now visiting the United States, that the British were inciting Bedouin tribes to attack Palestine or another Middle East country, to provide an excuse for keeping British troops in that area.

The other dispatch was a report of a meeting in New York of the American League for a Free Palestine, at which it was decided to launch a campaign to secure the independence of Palestine and the free immigration of Jews.
