Revisionists Demand Magnes Be Disciplined

Download PDF for this date

“Disciplinary action against one who through irresponsible utterances has carelessly jeopardized hopes and Jewish constructive efforts in Palestine,” is demanded from the Executive Committee of the World Zionist Organization and the board of governors of the Hebrew University, by the Zionist Revisionists of America, in a statement issued yesterday.

“Only the deplorable publicity and widespread consideration given to the statement of Dr. Magnes raise it to the dignity of an issue,” the statement said. “But having received that attention of the world press and public, they demand vigorous refutation by those who view the conditions of Palestinian life clearly and fairly.

“The question of a Parliament has been raised by Arab agitators who, under the screen of a democratic principle have sought to establish this means of further oppressing the Jewish minority and of preventing the establishment of the Jewish national home in Palestine.”
