Special protest services will be held in all Palestine mosques on November 2nd, the 6th anniversary of the issuing of the Balfour Declaration establishing a national home for the Jewish people in Palestine, according to a Jerusalem report to the anti-Zionist DAILY EXPRESS here.

“Protest lithurgies” have been arranged for this occasion, during which the Moslem Arabs of Palestine will invoke the Prophet’s aid against the British Government’s Zionist project, the correspondent states.

The Arab Executive, it is reported, is calling a meeting in Jerusalem of Notables to induce them to resign from the Legislative Council. The meeting is scheduled to be held Sunday.
