"feeling of fellowship" and "the inspiration of all faiths", we look in vain for the Person
and Work of the Son of God. It is indeed true that "mankind is crying out for peace", but
the World Congress is heading straight for that "peace and safety" that shall be followed
by "sudden destruction".
Let us continue to pray and to bear our testimony to an inspired Bible, an infallible
Christ, an all-sufficient Sacrifice, and a "blessed hope".
Arab Opposition to the Jews in Palestine.
pp. 44, 45
The Arabs in Palestine are strongly opposed to the influx of the Jews, and are
demanding that their immigration into Palestine shall be curtailed.  The Scriptures
indicate that the Jews will return to their land in unbelief, and that the nations of the
world will become so incensed against them that they will say:--
"Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no
more in remembrance."
"For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against
Thee: the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes, Gebal,
and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistine with the inhabitants of Tyre" (Psa. 83: 4-7).
What we see in Palestine to-day is but the spark that will eventually blaze out into a
devouring flame at the time of the end.
The following extract from the News Chronicle (May 1936) will give some idea of the
state of things at Jerusalem at that time:--
Jerusalem (Wednesday).
Throughout Palestine the Arab general strike will continue indefinitely in an attempt
to force the British Government to stop the flow of Jewish immigrants into the country.
This ultimatum, defying the High Commissioner's statement that he will enter into no
negotiations until law and order have been restored, was given me to-day by Abdul Hadi,
Secretary of the Higher Arab Committee.
We Arabs, he said, are prepared to commit economic and racial suicide in Palestine
rather than be suffocated by the increasing flow of Jewish immigration.
We are making a last stand for our rights, and we are prepared to lose everything in
this struggle rather than submit to economic conquest by the Jews.
With Jews coming into this country at the rate of over 60,000 a year, Arabs will be in
a minority in ten years' time. The Jews are building a paradise for themselves and a hell
for the Arabs.
