July 1920: Arabic newspaper in Haifa embraces Zionism

A number of newspapers had this story in the summer of  1920, which seems a lot like what happened in the UAE exactly a hundred years later.

Even more remarkably, in 1923 that same newspaper started issuing a weekly Hebrew supplement, "HsShofer." The newspaper said it "hopes thereby to create a better understanding and more friendly relations between the Jews and the Arabs."
