The “Hajnt,” Warsaw Zionist daily, carries three articles in its issue today welcoming the report of the Jewish Agency Commission.

Isaac Gruenbaum says in his article that a million pound budget is not higher than the budget of the Zionist Organization, the Keren Hayesod, the Keren Kayemeth and the Hadassah.

The report is too sober, he complains, and takes away the romantic idealism of Zionism and the opportunity of youth to search for an ideal. The movement is not based on rationalism, but on idealism.

A. Goldberg, editor of the “Hajnt” declares: The report is an historic event for Zionism. There is no danger in taking in the non-Zionist element. Its appeal to the Jewish people proves the victory of Zionism.

“Der Moment” points out that the anxiety about enlisting non-Zionists in the Palestine work was unfounded.

“Hazefira,” Hebrew paper, states: The report is a real American work and action on the part of the non-Zionists is now expected.

The “Folkszeitung” organ of the Bund. Jewish labor party: Business people have now made a business subject of Palestine. The Jewish workers in Palestine have to expect a bad time, the paper declares.
