Shertok to Testify This Week; Arabs in Palestine Split

March 19, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Moshe Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency, will testify here before the Anglo-American Inquiry Committee on Thursday or Friday, when committee members who are now in Syria and other neighboring Arab countries return. He will be followed by Mussa El Alami, who will testify for the Arabs.

A delegation of Arab groups which are opposed to the Arab Higher Committee today visited Bartley Crum, American member of the committee, and presented their views to him during a lengthy talk.

The relations between various Arab groups in Palestine have recently deteriorated to such a point that the existence of the Higher Arab Committee is considered to be in danger. This, in turn, will affect the position of the Palestine Arabs at the Arab League.
