A boycott of American goods was urged today by Baged pepers in reply to a suggestion by former President Herbert Hoover that the United States grant a large loan to Iraq to finance the resettlement there of Arabs from Palestine, according to a Reuters dispatch.

Under such headings as “Devilish American Plan” and “New Zionist Scheme,” the papers sharply attack Koover’s suggestion for large-scale irrigration of arid land in Iraq and the transfer of Palestinian Arabs as a means of selving the Palestine problem.

(The American Zionist Emergency Council, in a statement issued in New York, decided that the Zionists have any desire to oust the Arabs from Palestine, and stressed that Jewish activities in Palestine have benefitted the Arabs. At the same time, it bloomed the Hoover plan, pointing out that “it is a new approach” to the problem. If the Arabs should be interested in the scheme, the Zionists would be happy to cooperate is implementing it, the council added.)

A British military court in Tripoli today imposed a death sentence on one of the perticipants in the anti-Jewish riots in Tripolitania early this month, it is reported here. Several defendants have already been given sentences ranging from six months to seven years, and a number of murder charges are being drawn up.
