Negativism, Boycott, Rejection - Hallmarks of "Palestinianism"

The 5th [Palestine Arab] Congress opened on 22 August 1922, following the return of the delegation from London. Leader of the delegation, Musa Kazem, argued against anti-British agitation and discouraged the use of violence since he reported that there was still possibilities of making progress through negotiations. Resolutions were passed:
  • rejecting the new constitution.
  • boycotting elections for the proposed Legaslative Council.
  • establishing a London Bureau.
  • boycotting Jewish goods including the Rutenberg (electricity) scheme.
  • no land sales to Jews.
  • no Jewish immigration.
  • pledging to oppose the establishment of a Jewish National Home.

It's an old story.
