Warsaw (Apr. 3)
The Yiddish daily “Haint”, organ of the Polish Zionist Organization, finds that the report is not as terrible as the rumors had predicted. “The report,” it says, “is a typical official document usual in similar ‘investigations’ by various governments following pogroms when the reason is not simply a search for the truth.
“Surely the report would have been different if there were twice as many Jews in Palestine right now.”
The “Moment,” the other leading Yiddish paper of Warsaw, says that the Commission’s recommendation to limit the sale of land means in fact the limitation of the right of Palestinian citizens to dispose of their private property. “This not only does not belong to the Commission’s terms of reference but is contradictory to the Mandate because the League of Nations has not authorized a new mandatory code or a new constitution.”
