The Iraq Government will spare no efforts to assist Palestine towards the fulfilment of “her racial aspirations,” Rogent Abdoul Illah declared today at the opening session of the Iraqui parliament in Bagdad, according to a Reuter dispatch.

A meeting of the Arab League’s council over the week-end considered means of implementing its reported policy of boycotting “Zionist goods and industries,” it was learned today. The council is also understood to be discussing means of preventing Jews buying land in Palestine.
