Miller (Unlleil Press Staff Correspondent) j JERUSALEM, Dec. 2 lUP)—Pal- e.stine Is a Innd of tears and lauglt- ler. joy and sadness, threats and promises. It may become al any liu,ie a country of bloodshed and violence. Swinging through the country as it was hearing the news of the United Nations decision lo partition it, I saw tanned and muscled Arabs weep without shame and bow tui- bancd heads in uncontrolled grief when they were told about the partitioning. I saw toothless grandmothers in flapping gowns shouting and snake' dancing lu Jewish settlements with youngsters whose joyous celebration of the birth of a Jewish state reverberated through the Jordan Valley. In Nablus, Hebron, and Jerusalem, stern-faced sheiks met in the warm sunshine to plot revenge and draw plans to thwart the establishment of another state—plans which if U.S. and Canada In Border Dispute!

An unknown number of the islands are scaltered through the waterways of the Kalny niver District of Ontario. No one knows which islands belong to what country.

Little Violence So Far So far the violence had been sporadic and unorganized. A group of Arab youths stoned the Czechoslovak Consulate, shouting -j£j wn with Czechoslovakia." They *We dispersed by police. Some 500 Arab youths paraded - through Jerusalem's old city this morning, shouting demands for the return of the grand mufti, Haj Aniln El Husscini, and establishment of an Arab state. Jewish buses were stoned near the ; Jaffa Gate, but none was Injured. A spokesman for Hagana said much Incidents had been expected. . adding that Hagana would not attempt retaliation for the death ol .seven Jews killed at Lydda unless the attacks persist. What the Jews feared most was ' organized warfare waged by Pales tinian and neighboring Arabs. Arab league leaders In yesterday's meet Ings swore to carry out their threat. | . of a holy war, and to kill any Ara 1 dissenters who failed to join the! campaign. Palestine's frontiers, however, wer peaceful, and spots where any in vasion must come were quiet. * Everything "Routine" ..At the bridge of Jacob's Daugh . ter over the Jordan River in,Hul Valley, Syrian guards said evcrythin was routine. They shrugged the f ^toulders when asked for reactio '™j the partitioning, saying soldiei Canadian land. Courts Back County Or the time when 11 islands be- ame tax delinquent and the com- lissloners arranged a land sale— ily to learn they again were traf- icking lu Crown soil. The lumbering firm paid Ihe tax ill when a court ruling held the Jnlted States had provided fire and lolice protection for the area and hat, therefore, taxes should go to he county. The land sale was dropped and he commissioners decided lo look ook orders, and did not question henr. t The Arabs called today the "be ginning of our resistance to a] lorcign Interference in our affairs. Entile Gltoury, secrety of the Ara Higher committee, said the Arab blamed Great Britain "for all thi iragcdy, but they are really happ .hat the United Nations openly ric clared for partition since it unmask the lies underlying its principles of American democracy and Russian Communism."
