Arabs in Haifa Form Nazi Club; Well Financed

July 1, 1935
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Arab youths here have organized a Nazi club, it was learned today.

The club has already established headquarters and goes under the name of “The Red Moon.”

Apparently the organization has strong backers, for all of its deficits are promptly met, and it seems able to draw upon unlimited financial resources.

This is viewed as another manifestation of an intensive Nazi anti-Semitic activity sponsored by the Hitler government, and which has broken out throughout Palestine and the Near East. Nazi agents have appeared in various parts of the country in an attempt to incite the Arabs against the Jews. They have been particularly successful among Arab nationalist youth.

Groups of brown-clad Arab youths are now organized in the larger cities.

Recently the Federation of Arab Youth in Palestine petitioned Hitler to help them prevent the Jews from obtaining additional land in Palestine.
