August 18, 1941

Tribute is paid today in the Economist, London weekly, to the role Palestine has played in the war. “Palestine’s greatest asset,” the article says, “is the possession of a number of first rate men of science who are applying their knowledge to the agriculture and industry of the country.”

The article reviews the important role which the mobilized Jews of Palestine played on the Libyan front. “The fresh resources which have now been developed in Palestine during wartime will have a permanent and healthy effect on the country’s economy,” the Economist predicts.
