Jerusalem (Jun. 23)
The Hebrew press here is lukewarm and almost indifferent to the prospects of either an ordinary or extraordinary World Zionist Congress this year. The Zionist Executive has asked the members of the Zionist Actions Committee to register by cable their opinions as to a congress this year. The next congress is ordinarily not due until 1931.
The “Davar” says, “The congress hullabaloo will not extricate us from our difficulties. We must mobilize all our forces. The shock registered in the Diaspora is only a beginning and it has produced some results in Geneva and Washington.” The “Ha’Aretz” argues that the present constitutional conditions are incomplete without the Jewish Agency’s council. “The extended Jewish Agency, not the Zionist Organization, is the political representative of the Jewish people vis avis the world.”
