July 1st, 1937 Arabs Say No to Jewish Homeland – State of Israel

Arabs Benefit from Zionism

The Arab population shows a remarkable increase since 1920, and it has had some share in the increased prosperity of Palestine. Many Arab landowners have benefited from the sale of land the profitable investment of the purchase  money. The fellaheen are better off on the whole than they were in 1920. This Arab progress has been partly due to the import of Jewish capital into Palestine and other factors associated with the growth of the National Home. In Particular, the Arabs have benefited from social services which could not have been provided on the existing scale without the revenue obtained from the Jews.
