  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF ARABS PARADED THROUGH THE STREETS OF AMMAN, THE JORDANIAN CAPITAL, YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) IN A PROTEST TO MARK THE 52ND ANNIVERSARY OF THE BALFOUR DECLARATION.

    THERE WERE DEMONSTRATIONS IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD, INCLUDING LONDON, BUT ISRAELI OFFICIALS REPORTED A QUIET DAY IN THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES.

    IN THE BALFOUR DECLARATION THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT PLEDGED ITS SUPPORT FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NATIONAL HOME FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN PALESTINE. BALFOUR DAY HAS SINCE BECOME A DAY OF PROTEST AND UNREST IN ARAB TOWNS AND CITIES.

    NO DEMONSTRATIONS WERE REPORTED IN ANY OF THE ISRAELI-OCCUPIED TERRITORIES, BUT SOME STUDENTS IN NABLUS AND GAZA RESPONDED TO STRIKE CALLS FROM AMMAN AND CAIRO.

    IN LONDON, ARABS AND BRITISH SYMPATHISERS PARADED OUTSIDE THE ISRAELI EMBASSY, BUT THERE WAS NO SERIOUS TROUBLE.
