While the Commission was sitting at Jaffa taking evidence about the Jaffa riots, the Chairman received an instruction from His Excellency the High Commissioner, that it was desired to have an interim report on the Khedera raid as soon as possible. The Commission accordingly removed to Nablus on the 13th June, and sat during three days at Khedera, and six days at Tulkeram. The three Assessors representing the Moslem, Christian and Jewish Communities, accompanied it.
Khedera is a Jewish agricultural colony with its village situated on a rising ground, isolated in a sandy but generally cultivated plain of Philistia, about 2½ miles from the sea, between Jaffa and Caesarea; the village is well built with houses of European type and streets of soft sand, the whole girdled and interspersed with eucalyptus trees. It is a pleasant place, and the colonists give one the impression of being of a sturdy and healthy type. They look what they are, an agricultural community, and they have built up a prosperous little commonwealth by their own persistent industry. Their number is about 600 souls, and they employed, until the recent disturbance, about 400 to 500 Arab labourers, who belonged to the surrounding villages, and generally resided in the colony, except for periodical visits to their villages.
The nearest administrative centre is Tulkeram, about 12 miles distant, in the administrative district of Jaffa, while Khedera is in that of Haifa. There is a railway station on the Haifa-Ludd line, about 1½ miles from the village. Kakon is about seven and Tulkeram about 12 miles to the south-east. Kakon is just on the edge of the sandy plain, and is a link between that part of the plain and a number of villages to the east and north-east. Tulkeram is on the high road from Jaffa to Nablus, with Jaffa about 27 miles to the south-west, and Nablus about 18 miles to the east.
You may call Tulkeram a large village or a small town. It is the administrative centre for about 40 villages and is the seat of a Sub-District Governor. It is almost exclusively Moslem; there are a few Christians, but Jews are not tolerated. The same may be said of Nablus, the capital of the district of Samaria.
On the 6th May, 1921, a raid was made from neighbouring villages upon Khedera. The lives of the colonists were saved by the arrival of an aeroplane, but two houses were burned and 14 houses were wholly or partially ransacked. Much cattle is said to have been stolen.
The events which led up to this raid began with the Jaffa riots, which took place on the 1st May. The consequent excitement spread through the country, especially to the north-east.
