The Palestine Mandate could be carried out and should be, in the interests of all the peoples of the Holy Land who had to live together and must and can learn to live together as neighbors and friends, declared Felix M. Warburg, chairman of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, in a statement, issued through the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, at an informal meeting of the American members of the Council and Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency, the members of the newly elected Administrative Committee of the Zionist Organization of America, and the members of the Palestine Emergency Fund.
Mr. Warburg stated that “the Mandate which called upon Great Britain to make possible the creation of a Jewish home in Palestine, had made due provision to protect the civil and religious liberties of non-Jewish communities in Palestine. A genuine desire for cooperation and an atmosphere of good will and mutual confidence would do much to solve the problems of Palestine. So far as the Jews were concerned, they would spare no honorable effort to secure cooperation with the Arabs in developing the country.
“The Mandate could be carried out, and should be, in the interest of all the peoples of the Holy Land, who had to live together, and must and can learn to live together as neighbors and friends.”
