A blood feud is foreshadowed between the family of the late Mousa Adeb, founder of the Arab peasant party and opponent of the Grand Mufti, and the clan of Amin El Husseini, over the murder of Adeb in Jerusalem a fortnight ago.

The Hebrew paper. “Davar.” learned that the relatives of Adeb have sworn vengeance, especially against the Grand Mufti. It is reported that Amin El Husseini is greatly perturbed and is doing all possible to pacify the friends of the massacred peasant leader.
