Replying to the charge that American Jews had too strongly expressed themselves against the British government for its White Paper on Palestine, Judge Julian Mack of Chicago said, “If necessary America will express itself even more strongly” Judge Mack spoke before a joint mas#meeting of the Revisionists and Radical Zionists last night.

The Chicago judge praised the statement made by Felix M. Warburg, in reply to Lord Passfield, in resigning as head of the Jewish Agency for Palestine. “Warburg’s statement showed the deepest love of Zionism,” said Judge Mack.

“The London Zionist Executive believes American Jews expressed themselves too strongly against Passfield’s White Paper, but if necessary America

will express itself even more strongly. Nevertheless it must be remembered that it is not the British people but the present British government that is to blame for this act,” he said. In this he agreed with a resolution passed by the Revisionists at the meeting.

“Liberal and Conservative statesmen confirm the hope that England will adjust the committee breach of justice. This will soon be seen. But if the British people also disappoint the Jewry of the world, then we shall rely upon ourselves, remaining as immovable as the settlers in Palestine!” was the pledge made by Judge Mack.

Dr. Buckspann, leading Revisionist at the meeting, demanded an early World Zionist Congress and the resignation of the entire Zionist Executive, and called for a return to the “full Zionism of Theodore Herzl. When the Zionist parody of the last few years is abolished,” he said, “Herzl’s Zionism will win.”
