TUESDAY, MARCH 16 1948 BLflHEVlLLB (ARK.)' OOUKIE* British S/iow Faulty Judgment In Weak-Handed Policy as Jews And Arabs Battle in Palestine By Robert O. Miller linked Prew Stiff Correspondent 'Die main objective of Uie British forces remaining in Palestine In to evacuat,e troops mid material with a* small « IOR? of life as poasibl*. The British mandate In the Holy Land will be given up May 15, according to London announcemehts, and all troops are expected to be evacuated to Cyprus, Africa, and other parts of the Empire by August U. The first of the 50,000 military personnel have already been sent out, and the operation will move faster now that the porU have been cleared of citrus shipment!!, Few of Britain's experts on the ! ATiddle East ever expected the chaos •J.ilch now prevails in Palestine. They anticipated that the partition vote would cause some rioting, but, predicted that the Arabs "were Jusi bluffing," would never fight and that Lheir leaders were secretly reconciled to some form of partition. The British coloninl administration Im found mat rioting oy stone-throwing mobs In the Middle East has served as a safety valve for the highly emotional" Arabs. Consequently incy believed it wiser to allow the mobs lo exhaust themselves with curses, brickbats and stones than to be suppressed and harbor ill feelings which mignt eventually develop into a full-grown revolution. llritish Krror Costly Thus, when the Arab mobs m '.

There \vere also anti-Semitic groups in the British occupation forces who increased the tension between the two groups. When the Jews began to suffer heavily at the hands of Arab mob. there was a decided change heart, and the traditional love ol the underdog converted many Britisher to the Jewish side. The affection was neither returned nor • long lived. The Jewish Extremist.*; . continued to kill Britishers and taraclifta, Ark., S*ot Of Four Counties, To Honor fatly Citizens MENA. Ark., March 1«.

Some have even approached newsmen, offering pistols and rifles *t $100 each. There is considerable Arab boasting of bribes paid to British soldiers and policemen who shut their eyes to arms and ammunition being smuggled into Palestine. Jews tell of being forced to pay large sums to police armored car squads who run a "taxi" service through danger tones. There have been repeated instance, 1 ; of British authorities disarming Jewish convoj-s along the highways which A. few miles farther were attacked and destroyed ay Arab bends. The British have seldom been able to do anything right during the rioting. Tf their actions were approved by the" Jews th ey were damned by the Arabs, or vice versa.
