Arab Revolt and Palestine--League Against Imperialism (British Section)


Manifesto! Arab Revolt against Imperialism [title repeated in Yiddish]. [London:] B. Weinberg, 138 Brick Lane, [n.d., c. 1929] 


4 page pamphlet, in English and Yiddish, slight spotting and creases at extremities


WITH:


American Colony photograph of Arabs rioting against the British in Jerusalem on 13 October 1933, protesting Jewish immigration to Palestine, photographer's ink stamp and ink inscription on the reverse, vintage silver print (170 x 125mm.)


A RARE PAMPHLET CALLING FOR AN ARAB REVOLT IN PALESTINE, the withdrawal of British armed forces from the Arab countries, Arab Independence ('and the formation of a federation of Arab states, if desired'), and a free Palestine based on the unity of Arab and Jewish workers and peasants - with full political and trade union rights for both Jewish and Arab workers'.


The text references three controversial Jewish-Zionist figures involved in Palestine at the time: Sir Herbert Samuel (High Commissioner for Palestine), The Marquess of Reading [Rufus Isaacs, Viceroy of India from 1921-6] and Lord Melchett (Chairman of ICI). It also makes the connection between Palestine’s strategic position between the oil fields of Iraq, Persia & the Gulf, and the Mediterranean gateway to Europe.
