Palestine Bans “propaganda” Textbook

September 10, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The use in the Arab schools of “The Story of Palestine” a text book highly colored by an anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist bias has been forbidden by the government.

The author of the book is Calil Muza, director of the government’s teachers’ seminary.

The Jaffa paper “Palestine” is very much wrought up over the government’s order, and complains that the “sinister” influence of the Zionists pervades everywhere.
