Doubts Advisability of Calling Special World Zionist Congress

Download PDF for this date

The advisability of calling a World Zionist Congress is doubted by the Hebrew daily, “Ha’Aretz,” which argues that a session of the Zionist Actions Committee would perhaps suffice. A Congress and a meeting of the Jewish Agency’s Council would paralyze ordinary work the paper feels. It a Congress is necessary, the “Ha’Aretz” says an extraordinary Congress is preferable to an ordinary Congress with its election of delegation.

Acting on the request of the Zionist Executive to members of the Actions Committee that they vote by cable on whether or not they favor a Congress this year the Palestine Zionist Executive intends to convene a special meeting of the Palestine members of the Actions Committee to discuss the matter.
