Palestine Hebrew Press Denounces Magnes’s Act

The Hebrew press of Palestine is unanimous in its opposition to the article in the New York “Times,” in which Dr. Judah L. Magnes gave utterance to his views on Palestine.

The “Ha’ Aretz” calls it a “negation of Zionism,” declaring that Magnes does not believe in Zionism and its rightfulness. The “Davar” is indignant that Magnes permitted the intrigue of St. John Philby, and asks: “Why is only Palestine to be delivered to all humanity? Why not Athens and Rome? They are also sacred to humanity.”

The “Doar Hayom” asserts that the Magnes negotiations with St. John Philby are treacherous and asserts that he must resign from his post as Chancellor of the Hebrew University.
