Awni Bey Abdel-Hadi was a major Palestinian Arab leader in the 1930s. He famously told the Peel Commission, “There is no such country [as Palestine]…. Palestine is a term the Zionists invented…. Our country was for centuries part of Syria.”
He was involved in the 1936-39 Arab riots in Palestine and because of that the British apparently locked him up at the Sarafand camp (later known as Tzrifin.)
From the Palestine Post, February 8, 1937.
