April 4, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Great indignation was created among Palestinian Jews when they were barred from approaching the temple wall on Passover on account of an anti-Zionism Arab procession.

“Palestine is our own country” – “Down with Zionism” and “Long live Mustap a Kemal Pasha” were some of the shouts of the marchers resulting in the arrest of several of them.
