Emil Ghuri (Arabic: إميل الغوري‎, alternatively spelled Emil Ghoury) (1907–1984), a Palestinian Christian, was Secretary of the Arab Higher Committee (AHC), the official leadership of the Arabs in the British Mandate of Palestine.[1] He was also the general secretary of the Palestine Arab Party.

In May 1947 Ghuri was nominated by the AHC as a member of its delegation to represent it before the United Nations in its special session for Palestine.[citation needed] Other people nominated for this delegation were Jamal al-Husayni, Henry Cattan, Wasef Kamal, Issa Nakhleh, Rasem Khalidi.

After the death of Abd al-Qadir al-Husayni on 8 April 1948, Haj Amin al-Husayni gave the command of the Army of the Holy War to Ghuri.[citation needed]
