The cancellation of the Palestine elections can hardly be described as a victory for the Arabs, says a statement circulated by Reuter’s today, obviously inspired from official sources. No trouble is anticipated as a result of the step taken, which is held to have been "absolutely necessary."

The DAILY EXPRESS declares this statement is at variance with the facts. It holds that the true position of Zionism has been revealed through the boycott showing the country hostile and resentful towards Zionism. The TIMES declares the order shows that Britain cannot abandon the course it has undertaken in Palestine. Palestine will be excluded from the Arab Federation, because of the Zionist.
