H-Judaic is saddened to learn of the death of David Neal Miller (1946-2018), Associate Professor, Associate Professor and Director of Yiddish and Ashkenazic Studies at Ohio State University in Columbus. The University has posted the following memorial:
the 1925 Waqf pamphlet may be found here, in English: https://www.templeinstitute.org/wakf-1925-guidebook.htm. I don't know if it was authored by the Mufti, but I believe he was in fact mufti at that time, so presumably had authority ... (The 1950 edition of the pamphlet still contained the reference you mentioned, 2 years after the establishment of Israel, but by 1954 those references had been expunged ....)
A website addressing Haj Amin el-Husayni's responsibility for the guide
provides a link to a copy of the 1923 edition in English:
