A protest against the Balfour Delcaration establishing the Jewish National Home in Palestine was adopted by the conference of Arab notables, which is now taking place in Mecca. The conference was convened for the purpose of furnishing political support to the claims of King Hussein of the Hedjas to the Caliphate.

The protest adopted was based upon a motion made by Sheik Muzfar, a member of the Palestine Arab Executive.
