Revistionists Demand Weizmann’s Resignation

Download PDF for this date

The calling of an extraordinary Zionist Congress session and the resignation of Dr. Chaim Weizmann from the Presidency of the World Zionist Organization were demanded in a resolution passed Thursday by the Zionist Revisionists of America, the opposition Zionist group, at a special meeting in the organization’s headquarters, No. 32 Union Square. An extract from the resolution follows:

“Dr. Weizmann, wined and dined by the aristocrats of English official life, lacking courage to make energetic representation to the men of his acquaintance in the British Government, despite plain warnings of the most competent and reliable Jewish observers in Palestine, has lamentably, alas, by his inertia and lack of perspicacity robbed the Jewish community of that measure of safety which vigorous representation to the British Cabinet could have achieved.”
