Commenting today on the dissolution of the Jerusalem municipal council by the Palestine government as a result of the dispute over the mayoralty, the Arab newspaper Falastin completely rejects Jewish demands, declaring that “Jewish rights in Palestine are a sheer fantasy.”
The newspaper Adifa says that any other solution but appointment of an Arab mayor is unacceptable. It attacks the appointment of a commission to survey the administrative machinery of Jerusalem, and urges that the “Palestine Government take the matter fully in hand and relieve the commission of futile work, because it knows that its reports will be of no avail.”
