Plenary Sessions Resumed at World Zionist Congress in Zurich

Download PDF for this date

Continuing the general debate the Sixteenth Zionist Congress resumed its plenary sessions on Friday noon. Mr. Harry Sacher, member of the Zionist Executive in Jerusalem since 1927, Dr. Alfred Klee, Zionist leader of Berlin and member of the Ica council as well as the delegate from Morocco, Tourz, were the first speakers.

Mr. Sacher defended the Executive against the criticism of the laborites and the Revisionists. The critics should be consistent, he said, and relieve him of the “persecution,” referring to the attempts being made to keep him in the Executive. Credit is due the Jerusalem Executive, he said, for checking the tendency in Zionist finances which was leading to bankruptcy in 1927 when he joined that body. Mr. Sacher spoke in English and met with few interruptions.
