Laudatory statements concerning the results of the Non-Zionist Conference on Palestine continue to be received.

A. M. BURD, Germantown, Pa. “There can be no divided opinion regarding the far reaching good which will result from the founding of the Jewish Agency. It predicts at last the sound and promising future for the organization of Zionism and the general interest of Palestine. This good, I sincerely hope, will in turn prove retroactive in its benefit of these great non-Zionist leaders in that by bringing them in closer contact with the ideal of Eretz Yisroel, they will be drawn more intimately to the Jewish fold.

“This great move will undoubtedly influence non-Zionists the world over to join the Agency, and it will destroy once for all that ever ready excuse on the part of so many who refuse to contribute to the good of Palestine on the ground that they are non-Zionists.”

MORRIS E. GOSSETT, New York City “The resolutions adopted have my full approval. I believe that the work accomplished by this conference will unite Jewry, all over the world, not only in the maintenance of the traditions of our people but in the accomplishment of what they have been looking forward to for thousands of years, the establishment of a National Home in Palestine.”

ALBERT H. SLATER, Paterson, N. J. “I believe that the resolutions adopted at the Non-Zionist Conference for the upbuilding of Palestine was the greatest forward step in Jewish history.”
