Re: Research Query: Text of pamphlet by Haj Amin el-Husayni

Hi Joan,
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 ....)
