Zionism Not Meant for Jews of France, Poincare Says

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The opinion that Zionism was not meant for French Jews was expressed by Prime Minister Raymond Poincare in reply to a query addressed to him by the Club Faubourg.

The French Prime Minister declared that “the Zionist movement is natural in certain countries, but it has no place in France where the Jews have long been identified with the French nation.”
