Palestine Workers Begin Fight Against the Jewish Agency Recommendations

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish labor parties in Palestine, which have consistently supported the policy of Dr. Chaim Weizmann for the enlargement of the Jewish Agency to include non-Zionists and have by their votes helped to make this policy the official program of the Zionist movement, are now turning against the Jewish Agency.

Resolutions to oppose the acceptance by the Zionist Actions Committee, which will meet in Berlin on July 19, of the report of the Jewish Agency Commission were adopted yesterday by the labor parties Ha’poel Hazair and Achduth Ha’Avodah. The Achduth Ha’Avodah has decided to “overthrow” the program of the Jewish Agency Commission and the Zionist Executive if the latter will insist on adherence to this program.
