The ex-mufti of Jerusalem today arrived in Beirut, Lebanon, travelling incognito from Egypt, it was reported here.
The Mufti went to Beirut to attend a meeting, begun yesterday, of the Arab League Council, which will discuss the Palestine problem, among other matters. This is the first time the Arab leader, wanted for murder in Palestine, left Egypt since he fled there in May, 1946, for France.
Dispatches from Cairo reported that Sheikh Hassan el Banna, head of the Moslem Brotherhood, had pledged to send 10,000 young Arabs to “save Palestine.” In a cable to Abdul Rahman Azzam Pasha, secretary-general of the Arab League who is now in Beirut, Banna said that “fighting is the only means of saving Palestine.”
