The view is predominantly in disagreement with the opposition’s aims and methods, particular emphasis being laid on the danger that might result to the United Palestine Appeal collections from the oppositional fight.
The “Doar Ha’yom,” Jerusalem daily, observes that “whether Lipsky or the opposition are right, the upbuilding of Palestine will suffer through the controversy.”
The “Davar,” Tel Aviv labor daily, expresses the opinion that the labor elements within the Zionist movement should help the Lipsky-Weizmann party. The labor organ argues that if the American Zionist opposition is successful, it will aim “to destroy the national social basis of the Zionist work.”
The Ha’Aretz, Tel Aviv daily, urges a coalition of all Zionist forces without regard to differences of opinion.
