Austrian Zionists Demand Extraordinary Congress on Jewish Agency Question

Download PDF for this date

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The demand that the Zionist Executive issue a call immediately for an extraordinary Zionist Congress, to consider the results of the London conference of the Jewish Agency Comission, was voiced today by the “Zionistische Stimme,” the official organ of the Federation of Austrian Zionists.

The paper censures the leaders of the London conference for the secrecy in which the deliberations were enshrouded and expressed astonishment at the fact that up to this date no word is available as to the nature of the recommendations and the decisions arrived at.

Even if the London conference has produced some practical results, the Zionist Congress must lift the veil of secrecy so that the Zionist upbuilding work should not be hampered.

If the decisions and proposals arrived at are not satisfactory, they may be rejected. or, if the London conference has generally remained without result, the Zionist Congress will have to liquidate the Jewish Agency policy, the paper states.
