Polish Zionist Organ Sees U.S. Intervention As Only Hope of Palestine Jews

Download PDF for this date

The intervention of the United States is the only hope of the Jews in Palestine, the Nasz Pszegolnd, Zionist organ, will say tomorrow in commenting on the British statement of policy and the Simpson report. American intervention is the last resort “because Great Britain will win her case with the League of Nations by making it appear that she is saving the Arabs from a Jewish offensive. We Jews have outlived the Roman empire and we shall outlive the British lion.”

The entire Jewish press of the country tomorrow will carry lengthy comments on the British statement. All of the interests of the Jewish masses in the coming elections and in the economic crisis are completely overshadowed by the reports from London. The offices of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in Warsaw are completely swamped by anxious inquiries from all parts of Poland.

The two leading Yiddish dailies of the country, the Haint and the Moment, urge the Jews to “pour out their wrath upon an evil government.” They claim that the resignation of Dr. Weizmann yesterday came too late. The papers say that the Labor government cruelly betrayed him. Even the Volkszeitung, organ of the anti-Zionist Jewish Socialist Party, emphasizes that the policy of the Labor government was dictated by imperialistic interests and that it acted exclusively from egotistical motives. The present attitude of the British government is “a triumph for the Arab nationalists.”
