Palestine Arab Leader Going to France to Confer with Mufti; Will See Bevin in London

Mussa el Alami, a member of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee and unofficial Palestine delegate to the Arab League, is being sent to France to report to the Mufti concerning Arab opposition to the Anglo-American committee’s recommendations, it was reported today from Jerusalem.

The report said that Alami will come to London, after conferring with the Mufti, to warn Foreign Minister Bevin and Colonial Secretary George Hall that the Arabs are seriously considering appealing for Soviet intervention in their behalf. He will also attempt to contact such pro-Arab public figures as Maj. Gen. Sir Edward Spears, former British minister in the Levant and Sir Ronald Storrs, former district commissioner of Jerusalem, to organize pressure upon the Government not to implement the report.
