Excerpt from Jerusalem, 1918-1920: Being the Records of the Pro-Jerusalem Council During the Period of the British Military Administration

The Pro-Jerusalem Society was founded in fact, though not on paper, in the spring following Lord Allenby's liberation of Jerusalem. There were, and will always remain, many aspects of civic life, more especially in this unique city, in which no Military Administration, no Civil Government even, could, without thwarting civic and individual effort, occupy itself, however sympathetically inclined. And in the hard and continuous pressure of the first weeks of the occupation it was clearly impossible for the Military Authorities to execute themselves or guarantee execution of even such primal necessities as are indicated by the following Public Notice: -

"No person shall demolish, erect, alter, or repair the structure of any building in the city of Jerusalem or its environs within a radius of 2,500 metres from the Damascus Gate (Bab al Amud) until he has obtained a written permit from the Military Governor.

"Any person contravening the orders contained in this proclamation, or any term or terms contained in a licence issued to him under this proclamation, will be liable upon conviction to a fine not exceeding £E.20O.

or another, issued about the same time, forbidding the use of stucco and corrugated iron within the ancient city walls, and thus respecting the tradition of stone vaulting, the heritage in Jerusalem of an immemorial and a hallowed past.

The issue of these two orders ensured the temporary and provisional Military Administration against the charge of encouraging or permitting vandalism. It is, however, no less impossible than it would be improper to attempt the preservation and extension of the amenities of the Holy City without due consultation with the Heads of the Religious and Lay Communities which inhabit it.
