Says Danger May Result from Failure to Refute Arab Libels

Download PDF for this date

Political and moral danger is bound to result from the Inquiry Commission’s report citing allot the libels against the Zionist colonization efforts, which were only answered by Moses Smilansky’s argument that the Jewish colonists employ thousands of Arabs and buy Arab vegetables, says the Hebrew daily “Da-var” today, in publishing the labor group’s protest because the representatives of the post-war colonies, especially from those in, the Emek Valley, had not been summoned to testify. The “Davar” argues that Smilansky’s evidence is apt to create the impression that the Jews constitute an upper strata of- the population, equipped with capital, technical training and skill because there is little distinction between Jewish employes and Jewish employers but between Jewish employers and Arab employes the usual relation between employer and employe are maintained.
