Frank Gervasi, foreign correspondent, declares in an article on Palestine in the current issue of Collier’s magazine that as soon as British troops are shifted from Palestine, there will be a recrudescence of Arab anti-Jewish disorders.

Gervasi states that German and Italian anti-Jewish propaganda had been very effective in the Middle East. He quotes a typical Arab as saying, “Hitler’s right about the Jews…We ought to kill them all.”
