“I have no faith in the successful work of a Jewish national party in Roumania. The Union of Roumanian Jews will submit this question to a plebiscite of Roumanian Jews for their dicision. If the voters decide on the formation of a Jewish national party, we will submit to this decision,” Mr. Karp declared.
