Israeli-Palestinian Conflict - Arabs of Israel. States - Britain/England. Underground - British Mandate, Etzel. Greater Land of Israel - Jerusalem
A flyer published in Arabic during the Arab riots of December 1947. The Etzel warned the Arabs that if their attacks on Jewish civilians continued it would take vengeance. Now it has, with an offensive against rioters in several different cities that showed the Arabs the strength of the Jewish soldier. Now the Etzel once again calls on the Arab rioters to stop attacking Jews. Neither side is served by the violence; only the British oppressors stand to gain. The Arabs should reject the British and their anti-Jewish incitement and resume neighborly relations with the Jews. If the attacks do not stop, the Etzel will strengthen its counteroffensive. So for their own sakes as well as the sake of the Jews, the attacks must stop.
