THE STUDENTS’ APPEAL TO THE SONS OF THE FATHERLAND
YOU ARAB, CUT OFF YOUR COMMERCIAL RELATIONS WITH THE JEWS!
If you are concerned in the life of your country and in your future, keep away from the Jew who has killed your innocent Arab brethren with weapons purchased with the money you paid in buying his goods and which he intends to utilize for the acquisition of the land remaining in your hands in order to drive you away from your Fatherland. Know that in buying from a Jew you will yourself work for the extermination of your life and your country with your own hands and will betray your Fatherland and religion. Therefore, you Arab, either Moslem or Christian, win the confidence of your people and boycott the Jews by buying nothing from him except land and by selling him everything except land. Remember always the words of the upright Caliph Omar Ben Khutab who said- “The foreigners shall overcome you in trade which is one third of domination…”
O Arab! Remember that the Jew is your strongest enemy and the enemy of your ancestors since olden times. Do not be misled by his tricks for it is he who tortured Christ, peace be upon him, and poisoned Mohammed, peace and worship be with him. It is he who now endeavours to slaughter you as he did yesterday. Be aware that the best way to save yourself and your Fatherland from the grasp of the foreign intruder and greedy Jew is to boycott him. Therefore boycott him and support the industry of your Fatherland and God.
THE JERUSALEM ARAB STUDENTS.
