October 20, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Rumors that the Wahabi movement in Hedjaz is being sponsored by the Angora Government and that the Wahabis intend, after conquering Hedjaz, to come to Palestine and “save its inhabitants” are recorded in the Arab paper “Lissan Al Arab”. The paper, however, denies these rumors, saying they have no foundation.
