Palestine Arab Leaders Meet with Ex-mufti in Secret Session; Map Anti-jewish Plans

December 24, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The members of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee met in a secret eight-hour session here yesterday under the chairmanship of the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem.

Although the results of the discussions were not made public, it is known that the group reached decisions on participation in the London conference on Palestine, unification of Palestine Arab youth organizations and the establishment of new boycott measures to punish and prevent Arabs from selling land to Jews.

The nature of the decisions will probably be disclosed after the Zionist position hammered out at the Basle Congress becomes known. It is reliably learned that the members of the Committee expressed dissatisfaction with the Arab League’s handling of the Palestine issue and declared that decisions adopted at the London parley will not be binding upon the Palestine Arabs, unless their representatives attend.
