Arab Meeting in Paris Attacks “big Three Collaboration” on Palestine Partition

Download PDF for this date

The alleged “collusion” among the Big Three against the Palestine Arabs was attacked here at a meeting called by the Association of Friends of Arab Palestine, which is another name for the Algerian Peoples Party.

Speakers linked the struggle against Zionism to the battle of the “North African nation” against French imperialism. One speaker brought forth whistles and catcalls when he referred to “our friend Bidault who wants us to believe that France is pro-Arab. We will believe that only when he gives independence to 25,000,000 Arabs in North Africa.”

H.B. Khoury, Paris representative of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee, said that “France has a large part in the solution of this (Palestine) problem. By tradition she should act as a mediator and make France again a defender of freedom.”

While spokesmen for the Hebrew Committee for National Liberation have publicly congratulated the French Government for refusing to support partition of Palestine, Revisionist headquarters here today issued a statement thanking those nations suporting partition.

The Revisionists said that while they condemn the Jewish Agency for renouncing ?te claim to all of Palestine, the opponents of partition are motivated by anti-Jewish sentiments and not by a desire to give all of Palestine to the Jews.
