Continuing his campaign against the Arab League, King Abdullah of Transjordan today said that the League has proved itself a useless organization. A broadcast over the Transjordan-controlled Ramallah radio said that King Abdullah would like to ask the League the three following questions:

1. How can the Arab League call for unity when its members are hopelessly disunited and when war may break out at any moment between two or more of them?

2. In view of the military weakness of its member states, how does the Arab League hope to solve the Palestine problem except by direct talks with the Government of Israel?

3. How does the Arab League reconcile its promise to defend Palestine with its members’ approval of the internationalization of Jerusalem?
