U.S.A. Criticism of British Troops in Palestine

From Our Own Correspondent


The dispatch of British troops to the Holy Land has occasioned some bitter criticism in a few Catholic newspapers over here, as there is generally more sympathy for the Arabs than for the Jews.

The fact that there are many Christian Arabs in the vicinity of the Holy Land, and that the Bishop of Hama, Syria, was elected vice-president of the Arab Congress in 1927, are factors weighing the scales in favour of the Arabs.

Strife in the Holy Land should be settled according to the democratic principle of self-determination, leaders of Christian Arabians in America urge in an open statement to the secular and religious press. The appeal, which attacks " the efforts of political Zionists " is evidently made in reaction to strong Jewish propaganda.
