* Arabs declare war against Jews in Palestine
* Muslims - Judaica
This 60 page newspaper has a nice banner headline on the front page: "ARABS WRECK U.S. OFFICE IN IRAQ" with subheads. Nice for display.
Other news of the day. Some margin wear and chipping, otherwise good.
wikipedia notes: The 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine lasted from 30 November 1947, the date of the United Nations vote in favour of the termination of the British Mandate of Palestine and the UN Partition Plan, to the termination of the British Mandate itself on 14 May 1948.
This period constitutes the first phase of the 1948 Palestine war, during which the Jewish and Arab communities of Palestine clashed, while the British, who supposedly had the obligation to maintain order, organized their withdrawal and intervened only on an occasional basis.
The next phase of the conflict was the 1948 Arab-Israeli War which began on the 15 May 1948, on the termination of the British Mandate of Palestine and the creation of the State of Israel, when the conflict in Palestine became an outright war between the new State of Israel and its Arab neighbours.
