F J 4 PALESTINE PEOPLE BECOME ALARMED OVER ZIONISM Holy Places blenaced--Jewish Is- I migration Said to Be Almost Whol- ly BolshevmticFear Rule From Moscow. By Dr. Frederick Funder. (Vienna Correspondent, N. C. W. C. News Service.) Vienna, April 15.--Interesting in- formation regarding the present con- ditions and tendencies in Palestine are given by Mr. Kamel Wafa E1-Dajani, president of the Haifa Chamber of Commerce, who is on a visit to Vi- enna. What Mr. Kamel Wafa El-De- jane says confirms the statements that have heretofore been made by the N. C. W. C. News Service in re- speet to the political Situation in the : Holy Land. Speaking of the influence of Zion- ism in Palestine, Mr. Kamel Wafa said to the correspondent of the N. C. W. C. News Service: "England is making every effort to introduce into Palestine a Zionist government and to give preference in all quarters to the Zionist-Jewish ele- merit. It should not be forgotten that these experiments are being made in a country where the Jews represent hardly a tenth of the nativ popula- tion. In this land are the places dear i and sacred to Christians as well as I to the Mohammedan Arabs. What fills[ us with the utmost concern is that, i above all ,the Jewish immigration in- to Pale'tine as it is directed by Zion- ism is notoriously Socialist and even Bolshevistic in its complexion. Many Immigrants Socialists. "We people of Palestine harbor no grudge against the Jews. We have no animosity toward our old' Palestine fellow citizens, nor against the right- eous Jewish immigrant who comes ready for the earnest work of colon- ization. But the majority of the Jew- ish immigrants who have entered the country since the armistice are little intent on quiet, peaceiul agricultural activities. Far from it! They are for the most part youthful adventurers from Southeastern Europe. All they bring with them is their Socialist out- look upon life and the desire to found there a new state after their own THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1922.

BISHOP MULDOON CALMS PEOPLE WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES BRITISH PREMIER'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS CATHOLIC CHURCH (sv It. €. w. s. ItnE |ERVlCtll By H. C. Watts. London, April 15.--Although Pre- mier Lloyd George is a Welch Bap- tist of the stricter sort he seems, on the whole, to have had a strong pri- vate friendship for Catholics, and a Catholic can generally be discovered floating around somewhere in the Prime Minister's entourage• During the recent famous period of political convalescence down at Cric- cieth there was a small house party at Mr. Ll.oyd George's private resi- dence, among the members being some famous English musicians who got up a sacred concert for the Pre- mier's behalf. The concert was to have been given in the local Anglican church, but the divine in charge would not hear of it, and so the perform- ance was given in a non-episcopal conventicle• But what emerged from this incident was that the accomp- paniment was conducted by Dr. Terry the musical director of Westminster Cathedral, who is a close friend of the Premier.
