Fifth Arab Slain by Terrorists for Selling Land to Jews; Many Fleeing to Transjordan

A prominent Arab was killed last night in Tiberias by Arab nationalists, allegedly for selling land to Jews. He is the fifth victim of Arab fanatics in recent weeks.

Fearing for their lives, many Arab notables, especially those who during the last few months sold land to Jews and subsequently received threatening letters from extremist groups, have left Palestine for Transjordan where they plan to resettle.
