Download PDF for this date

Mayor Teddy Kollek has recommended that the Arab residents of East Jerusalem be given back all their frozen property in Israel. At present these Arabs, most of whom are still Jordanian citizens, have the status of absentees and cannot claim abandoned property. Mayor Kollek’s comments appeared in an interview Friday in the Arabic daily “Al Anba.”
