The anti-Zionist statements recently made by Sheik Habbas Maleki, envoy of King Hussein of the Hedjaz, were entirely on his own responsibility. Announcement to this effect has been officially made.

Hussein declares that the Sheik was sent to Palestine only to supervise the delivery of the funds collected at Mecca for the restoration of the Mosque of Omar. The King disclaims responsibility for all nationalistic and other views expressed by him.
