Split in New State Party is Beneficial to Jews

The split in the recently organized German State party resulting from the decision of the Young Germans to leave the party is considered in political circles as favorable to the Jews. Without the handicap of the Young Germans the State Party will be able to adopt a full democratic program and combat anti-Semitism thus regaining support in Jewish circles. The State Party was organized from the remnants of the liquidated Democratic party, the Young Germans and other groups.

It is expected that six of the State Party’s members in the Reichstag, including the leader of the Young Germans, Arthur Mahraun, will join the semi-anti-Semitic Landbund while the other 14 members of the State Party in the Reichstag will form a coalition with the People’s party.
