Download PDF for this date

A resolution deploring the recent British statement of policy for Palestine was adopted by the national executive council of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States. The resolution declared that the action of Prime Minister MacDonald and his cabinet “is a direct violation of justice to the Jews,” and petitioned the British parliament to “reject the White Paper issued by the Colonial Office and to stand by the terms of the Mandate as interpreted by the Council of the League of Nations.”
