Palestine is advancing towards a happy future, has possibilities for developing larger industries and will become an important market for Dutch Indian products, declared Mr. Jacobus Kahn, Dutch Consul in Jerusalem, who is now visiting his home here.

Commenting upon the internal situation in the country, the Dutch Consul declared that the educational system in Palestine should not be so completely divided as it is now. “Jews and Arabs who must live together in Palestine, should become accustomed to each other in school”, he stated. “It is not possible to live in Palestine today without a knowledge of the Hebrew language”, the Dutch Consul concluded.
