Jerusalem (Jan. 15)
Lacking Zionist responsibility, Dr. Magnes is nevertheless responsible to Zionism, argues the Hebrew daily “Ha’Aretz” in an editorial against Dr. Magnes’s recent pamphlet, “Like All the Nations?”, in which he defends himself against his critics who attacked him for favoring a bi-national state and a parliament in Palestine. The “Ha’Aretz” asks, “Is there no power or authority to end the confusion and to establish at least for a few months a minimum of discipline and tolerance? The response from all groups of Zionists to his and St. John Philby’s discussions should suffice to terminate his active interference and offering of advice and help at this juncture.”
The “Ha’Aretz” also attacks the Zionist Revisionists for instructing the Roumanian Revisionists not to participate in the Keren Hayesod work, and Meier Grossman, vice-president of the Zionist Revisionists, for threatening separatist activity if an extraordinary Zionist congress is not called.
