Lot Number 56

Booklet on the Subject of the Rights of Palestinian Arabs – “The Arab Club” – Jerusalem, 1920

An Open Answer to the Open Letter of A. Berline from an Arab to the Zionists, by A. H., Jerusalem: Arab Club (al-Nadi al-'Arabi), Jerusalem [ca. 1920]. English.
An essay written in response to a composition titled "An open letter from the Zionists to the Arabs", written by the Parisian attorney A. Berline in light of the Jewish immigration to Palestine. In the present essay, written as an open letter to the Zionists, the author expresses his reservations regarding Berline's statements about the Palestinian Arabs, and refutes at length Berline's claims, and those of the Zionist Movement, regarding the right of the Jewish people to establish a state in Palestine. The essay was published by the Jerusalem branch of the Arab Club - an organization that sought to end the immigration of Jews to Palestine and aspired to incorporate Palestine in the Arab Kingdom of Syria. The branch's president was Mohammed Amin al-Husseini, later the Mufti of Jerusalem [he may have been the author of the pamphlet].
