Today the Arabs had their last big demonstrations (for the time being) thousands came into the town and attended meetings addressed by the mayor & other notables. We warned all the Palestinian Police to pass on the word that tomorrow all roads leading to
would be checked by Police. Nablus
I went to the club Cinema to see “The Spiral Staircase.”
Last evening some Tulkarm Police were passing through & they met Arabs on the road firing rifles into the air. They arrested two & brought them into the station. We told them this was not the policy the Police were adopting (unofficially) and we quietly pushed the Arabs & their arms outside the door.
The road block was also just as farcical. At 100yds before the block a Palestinian was posted with instructions to tell any lorries loaded as they have …
… been of late to turn and go back. The populace had been well lectured by their leaders on Friday & not one lorry load tried to come into town. If only Arabs had a leader with brains they could drive every Jew out of the country when we leave.
Today Sunday was as peaceful as ever.
