October 21, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Let the whole Arab population of Palestine elect a united Arab Committee to negotiate direct with a Committee representative of the Jews, writes “L’Orient” of Beirut, declaring that it is the only way of getting over the present difficult position in the country.

The British Government does not want an agreement between the Arabs and the Jews, nor even among the Arabs themselves. It is the Government policy which is responsible for the friction existing now between the different parties of Palestine Arabs. “Divide and Rule” is the policy of the British Government in Palestine, it declares.
