Arab Tells Canadian Committee Immigration of 100,000 to Palestine is “plot”

The immigration of 100,000 Jews to Palestine is not a humanitarian project but a Zionist plot to “befog their true purpose” which is to establish a religious state there M.S. Massoud, president of the Canadian Arab Friendship League, declared in testimony before the Parliamentary Committee on External Affairs. He added that if the Arabs are forced to accept Jewish immigration “they would eventually become a minority in their own land.”

Members of the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation, the Canadian Socialist party, have voiced opposition to a recent government announcement that 4,000 members of Gen. Wladislaw Anders’ Polish Army will be admitted as immigrants. The Socialists protested that the Polish soldiers are imbued with fascist teachings.
