“Let the Jews come to Palestine. All the Arab countries are open for them,” was the statement made by Caliph Hussein to Dr. Wolfgang Weisl, the Orient representative of the Vossische Zeitung, in an interview granted him by Caliph Hussein.
The Caliph, however, evaded a direct reply when asked about his attitude toward a Jewish National Home in Palestine. Instead he threw off his mantle, uncovered his breast and stated: “I receive the Jews with my heart.”
