Reader comment on item: From Time Immemorial

Submitted by cw (United States), Sep 14, 2013 at 20:08

Here are just two of numerous articles that support her general thesis:

Oct. 22, 1945 Indian Express: "illegal immigration into the country ...continues and according to an authoritative estimate, Arabs illegally entering Palestine are outnumbering the Jews by 20 to one. The Arab newspaper 'Aldifar' today reported that an appeal may be made to the neighbouring Arab countries to organise despatch of Arabs illegally into Palestine as counter to the Jewish immigration. According to police authorities it is far more difficult to keep a check of Arab suggling of immigrants than it is of the Jewish."

Nov. 7, 1937 Spokesman-Review quotes British Peel Commission Report:

"The increase in Arab population is most marked in urban areas affected by Jewish development. Jews have been building in Haifa and Arab population has increased there by 86 percent between 1922 and 1931."
