Declaring that the Arab land-owners are debt-ridden and unable to obtain mortgages or sell land except to Zionists and that the fellaheen are struggling without means, the Arab paper “El Carmel” sums up the Arab position in an editorial, “After the Commission, What?”‘ urging the Grand Mufti and the Arab Executive to create economic enterprises to assist the Arabs, to send delegations to Arab and Moslem countries. “Let the Commission’s recommendations be entirely in our favor, it won’t pay debts or feed the hungry.”
