Colonization work for Arabs in Palestine was undertaken by the Moslem Supreme Council, a religious body.

It was announced that the Council will establish an Arab colony at Rubin, near Jaffa, on a strip of land of 32,500 dunams. The land is Wakf land, religious property bequeathed to the Moslem religious authorities. The Council plans to establish the first Arab agricultural school there.
