Secret Arab Terrorist Organization Responsible for Recent Violence


The Palestine Government is now in possession of sensational information concerning the recent murders committed in Palestine. The information was supplied to the Government by a group of Arab notables of Nablus.

These notables state in their memorandum that there was recently formed in Palestine a secret Arab organization for the purpose of terrorizing and blackmailing the inhabitants. Many influential Arabs are supposed to be involved in this organization, which is held responsible for the murder of the Czechoslovakian journalist, Tatransky, the two Jews who were killed on Purim eve between Jaffe and Tel-Aviv, the murders committed recently in the colonies Hedera and Kefer, and the murder of several English officers.
