Says British Statement Cannot Break Jewish Will to Continue Palestine Work

The newly created conditions in regard to Palestine arising from the British statement of policy may perhaps slow up the work of upbuilding but it cannot break the Jewish will for continuation and the Jewish and general human work in Palestine, Dr. Bernard Kahn, European director of the Joint Distribution Committee and a member of the World Executive of the Jewish Agency, declared here tonight.

On the contrary, he believes that after overcoming the difficulties the Palestine work will be increased and new Jewish energy and willingness to intensify the tempo of the Palestine upbuilding will be manifested. Dr. Kahn declared that at “this difficult time when the financial situation the world over is bad it is the duty of the Jews and an expression of natural feeling of self preservation to continue to support Palestine and not let Jewish hopes be frustrated.”
