Warsaw Jewish Community Cables Protest to Macdonald on Inquiry Commission Report

Download PDF for this date

In a cable which has just been sent to Prime Minister MacDonald in the name of the Warsaw Jewish Community and which is signed by Deputy Farbstein, it is stated that Polish Jews are concerned and embittered over the report of the Palestine Inquiry Commission, because it ignores the historic right of Jews to Palestine, which is the basis of the League of Nations Mandate. The community expresses the hope that the government of Great Britain and the representatives of the British nation in Parliament will fulfill the historic duty which England has taken upon itself on behalf of the Jewish people, and thus justify the hopes placed in the British people by world Jewry.

In another cable sent by the Chief Rabbinate of Warsaw to MacDonald, and signed by Rabbis Gutschechter, Kahane and Michelson, disappointment is also expressed over the fact that in the report of the Inquiry Commission the historic and religious Jewish rights to Palestine have been ignored. The religious Jews express the hope that the English people, cherishing as they do the Bible and respecting the religious feelings of the Jewish people, will not disappoint the great hopes placed in England by the Jewish people, when Britain took over the Palestine Mandate.
