Jews and Moslems in Oujda Urged to “remain Calm” Following Stabbing of Arab Leader

Download PDF for this date

Leaders of the Nationalist Party in French Morocco today renewed their appeals to Jews and Moslems to “remain calm,” following the stabbing during the week-end of Mahomet Hajoui, Pasha of Oujda, at funeral services for Jews killed in last week’s rioting in Oujda.

The condition of the Pasha, who was assaulted by a Moslem fanatic after delivering an address rebuking the anti-Jewish rioters, was reported today as improved. Meanwhile, additional French troops arrived in Casablanca to reinforce the garrison at Oujda.
