British Restrict Jewish Immigration to PalestiThe British policy, that immigration into Palestine be suspended, caused consternation in Jewish circles and concealed satisfaction among the Arabs. The Jewish National Council hastily summoned from various parts of the country, sits now deliberating a reply to be issued to what they consider a most heavy blow to Jewish aspirations. The resignation of the Zionist world leader, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, is approved. Economic depression will follow the policy, Jews predict. There is some talk of a boycott. Arab leaders, when interviewed expressed satisfaction with the Simpson report and predicted that Jewish immigration and colonization would be suspended 10 years. Indication is given that the Arabs will now accept offers of a legislative assembly.
