A cable to the British government that it should carry out its full obligations in letter and in spirit of the Balfour Declaration and of the Palestine Mandate was dispatched last night from here as the result of a huge mass meeting at which the new policy of the British government in Palestine was severely criticized.

A resolution which was adopted at the meeting terms the White Paper of the British Government a retreat from the obligations which the British Government has undertaken towards the Jewish people, and a betrayal of their cause.
