The funeral cortege of King Faisal I of Iraq passing through Haifa, 1933. The king had died on a visit to Europe, and his body was en route to Iraq. The size of the crowd indicates the extent of his popularity among the Palestinians, and the hopes they pinned on Iraq's support in their resistance to British pro-Zionist policies. (See 88, 99)
