Al-Jami'a al-Arabiyya was daily newspaper with a nationalist orientation, first published on January 20th, 1927. It was founded by Munif al-Husseini, a pioneer of the Arabic national and cultural movement, who was among the close associates of the Majlisiyyin (the party of the Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini). In the first issue, the editor wrote that the newspaper would not support any one party or leader, only the homeland. In addition, it pledged to its readers that it would not take part in internal divisions, and would be transparent in its criticism. In line with the nationalist vision of its editors, the daily covered local news and reported on the broader the Arab world, with a section devoted to each country. The newspaper was opposed to Zionism and monitored the Hebrew press. It seems to have ceased publication following the Arab revolt in 1936.
