The exclusion of the Zionist Revisionist leader, Vladimir Jabotinsky, from Palestine by the Palestine government, is seen as “more than an act of injustice on the part of the Palestine government” in a statement issued here today by the World Revisionist Executive. The statement says that “in the case of a man with Jabotinsky’s record it must also be regarded as an act of cynical ingratitude. As such the conduct of the Palestine government needs no comment and may be safely left to public reprobation”.

The statement refers to Jabotinsky’s services to the British cause in organizing the Jewish Legion which as a regiment in General Allenby’s army aided in the British conquest of Palestine during the World War.
