The charge that a large percentage of the British police in Palestine are “enthusiastic members” of the outlawed British Union of Fascists, of which Sir Oswald Mosley is the leader, is made in the press here today, which states that “this does not make the situation in Palestine easier.”

Many members of Mosley’s party have gone to Palestine and joined the police there in order to avoid being conscripted into the Army. The Week, a political weekly news-letter writes. The London Jewish Chronicle draws special attention to the charges.

The Evening Standard reports that a group of London doctors have formed an anti-Semitic organization under the name of the “Medical Policy Association.” Interviewed by a representative of the Evening Standard, leaders of the new association denied that they were anti-Jewish. “We fight against Jewish Fascism and international Jewish control,” they said. The bulletin issued by the new group, however, refers approvingly to the notorious forgery, the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”
