Jordan Prohibits Mass Emigration
of Its Arab Refugees to Australia

GENEVA, (JTA) — The Jordan-
ian government, acting at the re-
quest of the Arab League, has
taken measures to stop mass emi-
gration of Palestine Arab refugees
from Jordan to Australia, it was
learned here from a report re-
ceived from Amman the Jordanian


The report revealed that there
a strong movement among the
r:rab refugees in Jordan to emi-
grate to Australia, and that Amin
El Husseini, Jordanian minister for
development, has expressed his
government's dissatisfaction to of-
ficials of the United Nations Re-
lief and Works Agency, which has
more than 650,000 Arab refugees
on its relief rolls in Jordan alone.

The refugees make up about
50 per cent of Jordan's total
population. A statement issued
by Husseini, following his con-
sultations with the UNRWA of-
ficials, read:

"Many rumors have been circu-
lating about the private emigration
of refugees to Australia, encour-
aged by UNRWA. The Jordanian
government has put an end to this
state of affairs, after having re-
ceived from the Arab League a
memorandum about the formal
prohibition of emigration of Arab
refugees to any other country. Fol-
lowing this position, certain
measures have been taken and
severe controls put into effect to
stop this emigration."

Husseini said he has been given
a message from Laurence Michel-
more, U N R W A. commissioner-
general, who has his headquarters
in Beirut, declaring that Michel-
more "disapproves of this means
of emigration."

Michelmore had stated, accord-
ing to the Jordanian minister, that
"there is no connection between
UNRWA and the emigration of
Arab refugees from Jordan."

Arab Boycott Creates British Scandal


(Continued from Page 1)
Douglas-Home, the Prime Minis-
ter, rebuked the ambassadors of
the Arab states here for interven-
ing on this issue. Government
spokesmen at the time emphasized
their opposition to Arab boycott
practices, but Sir Alec made it
clear that no further action would
be taken on the issue. Labor
Party members of Parliament,
however, requested stronger Gov-
ernment intervention.
Commenting on the develop-
ment, and predicting that the
Chamber of Commerce step
against Lord Mancroft would re-
sult in "eruptions" inside the or-
ganization, the Sunday Telegraph
pointed out that, among the Cham-
ber's ex-officio members, are such
"influential men in this country as
Lord Mayor Sir James Harman;
Sir Harry Hylton-Foster, a con-
servative leader in the House of
Commons; Lord Cromer, Governor
of the Bank of England; Patrick
Milligan, chairman of Lloyd's
Bank; and Lord Ritchie, chairman
of the London Stock Exchange.
The Chamber consists of 50,000
"What makes the present situa-
tion so astonishing," the newspa-
per declared, "is its crudity. All
this underlines the folly of the
Chamber's furtive plan, a little
more than six months after Man-
croft's forced resignation from
Norwich Union in the face of
Arab pressure."

Jewish Cemetery in N.Y.
May Be U.S. Landmark



NEW YORK (JTA)—The Span-
ish and Portuguese Synagogue is
negotiating with the U.S. Interior
Department's National Park Serv-
ice to have its ancient Jewish cem-
etery in lower Manhattan designat-
ed a national historic landmark.
The cemetery has a plaque
calling it the "First Cemetery of
the Spanish and Portuguese Syn-
agogue, Shearith Israel, in the
City of New York." The official
New York City Guide says the
cemetery was purchased in 1682
by a group of Spanish and Portu-
guese Jews who fled to New Am-
sterdam after the Spanish Inqui-
Harmon H. Goldstone, a member
of the congregation, reported on
the negotiations. The cemetery
contains the graves of some Jews

Mancroft Affront
Protested by MPs
Headed by Janner

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON—Sir Barnett Janner
and 12 other members of Parlia-
ment sent a joint letter Wednes-
day to the London Chamber of
Commerce protesting the with-
drawal of an invitation to Lord
Mancroft, Jewish business leader,
to become the Chamber's next
president. The action was taken
by the Chamber under Arab boy-
cott pressure.
The letter to Chamber President
Lord Verulam expressed "consider-
able misgivings and surprise" over
the development.
It cited reports that the reason
for the withdrawal was Lord Man-
croft's association with firms trad-
ing with Israel and others that
the Chamber was yielding to Arab
boycott pressures.
"We hope very much that this
is not so," the Deputies said in the
letter, "and that the Chamber will
reaffirm its previous statement
that it was opposed to being in-
fluenced by such pressures and
does not and will not contenance
The "previous statement was a
reference to a stand in the Cham-
ber's journal "Commerce," early
this year reaffirming the cham-
ber's support of resolutions adopted
in 1956 by the Association of Brit-
ish Chambers of Commerce on the
issue The resolutions deplored the
intervention of political questions
in the field of international trade
by recourse to "boycotts based on
racial or religious criteria."
Top officials of the Chamber
held a secret meeting Tuesday to
discuss the Mancroft matter. A
statement was promised on the
meeting, but after the two-hour
session ended no statement was
Press. comment on the develop-
ments continued to be severely
critical. The Daily Mail said that
it was impossible to say how many
British firms followed a policy of
giving in to such Arab pressures,
but that "Israelis say that the boy-
cott has more effect in Britain
than anywhere else in the world
