Palestinian Government Tells Arab Executive It Does Not Know What It is Talking About


The Executive of the Palestinian Arabs recently submitted a manorandum to the Government concerning the incident which took place during these Purim carnival, when two Jews were killed by unknown Arabs between Jaffa and Tel-Aviv. The memorandum placed the blame for this on the Jews.

In reply to that memorandum the Palestine Government has issued a statement saying that the memorandum was so full of glaring inaccuracies that no detailed reply to it was necessary. The government advises the Arab Executive that in the future, before submitting a memorandum, it should inquire into the facts.
