COURIER NEWS Arabs Demands Independence British Promises to Arabs Foslnr Strife in Troubled Palestine BY MILTON DKON'NF.U NBA Strvlce Staff Correspondent ' LONDON, Mar. 21.—On Easter Slindav. million's of Christians throughout the world will celebrate Ihe R"surrcclio') of Him who brought men Ihe divine message' of peace on earth and good will towards m:-n.

The Holy land—holy to three great monotheistic; religion s. Christian. Jewish and Moslem— which 1ms so often been dyed with men's blcod in rougher ages, has only recently again received its blocd'jath ami there is no telling when the horror will be started again. H is a case that. ;ias at wit's C!)d the men who run the British government, which in turn holds the mandate for Palestine — a mandate which President Wilson wisely refused to take for the United Slates. Dominance Important to Britain Today it is doubtful whether under any circumstances Great Britain would give \ip the land once fo misruled by the Turk For today Palestine is an important link in the scheme of British Empire. It has liarbois which serve as important outposts for the navv in case of threats to Ihe Suez Canal. It is the outlet for a uipe-line bearing the Increasingly precious and much-needed oil from the wells of Mosul. And it serves as an .important way- poinl in the air route from.Lon- don to India. What is ^ plaguing the British today i.s tlie conflict in promises they made during the World ,to the Arabs and the Jews, and each of thq,s2 has its world-wide repercussions. The pledge to the Jews aCfects a race scattered all over the "lobe; which sees its co-religionists ground to dust by Hitler in Germany and little better off i|i Rumania and Poland; which I has contributed of its money with '- open hand so that unfortunates could settle in the ancient land 01 their people;- and that ehei- ishes the dream of a restored zldn.
