Palestine Telegraphic Agency Despatches


The Executive of the Palestinian Arabs, the anti-Zionist body, under the leadership of Musa Kazim Pasha, finds itself now in a very critical financial position. Musa Kazim Pasha has found it necessary to visit the ruler of Transjordania, Emir Abdullah, to ask him to intercede with his father, Caliph Hussein, for a subsidy to the Arab Executive.

Another step towards strengthening its financial position was Musa Kazim Pasha’s move to gain the co-operation of the Arab workingmen. Up till now the Arab Executive has consisted mainly of the Effendis and the properties classes. An attempt is now being made to form an Arab workingmen’s organization, which would be affiliated with the Arab Executive.
