Danger to Jewish Community of Aden Seen in England

Concern was expressed in Jewish circles here today over the danger to the Jewish community of the British colony of Aden, which has recently become involved in political clashes with Yemen. It was noted here that, no matter who starts trouble in Aden, the Jewish community quickly becomes the scapegoat and the target of Arab mobs.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews is keeping a close watch on developments in Aden, and is maintaining contact with the Jewish community in the colony. Some time ago, the attention of the Governor of Aden was called to the position of the Jewish community there, and the possibilities of its being victimized again.
