Palestinian Arabs Form Anti-zionist International


An anti-Zionist International is the latest step taken by the Executive of the Palestine Arabs in their fight against the Balfour Declaration and the creation of a Jewish National Home in Palestine. The Arab Executive, in meeting here today, decided to take steps towards the formation of a world organization to be known as the “Defense of Palestine.”

The meeting also decided to offer honorary membership in this anti-Zionist world organization to King Hussein of Hedjas, the newly proclaimed Caliph, and his three sons, Feisul, King of Mesopotamia, Ali, Commander of the Hedjas forces and Emir Abdullah, ruler of Transjordania.
