Radical Zionists Vote Non-confidence in Z.o. Executive; Urge Change in Leadership

A resolution expressing non-confidence in the world Zionist Executive and demanding a change in Zionist policy and leadership was unanimously adopted at the world conference of Radical Zionists here today. The resolution was moved and voted after a heated debate between Robert Stricker, Radical Zionist leader from Austria on one hand, and Deputy Isaac Gruenbaum of Poland, Dr. Nahum Goldmann of Germany and Dr. Max Soloweitschek of Germany, on the other.

The conference also elected a central committee consisting of Mr. Stricker, Deputy Gruenbaum and Dr. S. J. Stern of Roumania. A decision was adopted to establish a central office in Berlin under the direction of Dr. Goldmann and Dr. Soloweitschek. Plans were also made looking to the unification of the Radical Zionist movement in Poland.

Sharp condemnation of the activities of the Brith Shalom Society in Palestine and a demand for a vigorous attitude towards the British government were voiced in a message to the conference from Rabbi Stephen S. Wise. The conference was attended by 149 delegates from eleven countries.
