Revisionists to Withdraw Unless Weizmann Repudiated

Download PDF for this date

The first convention of the Zionist Revisionists of America closed with the adoption of a resolution calling upon the World Union of Zionist Revisionists to withdraw from the World Zionist Organization at the coming congress if the Weizmann policies of Zionists politics are not repudiated. This resolution is subject to the approval of the executive committee of the Revisionists in London.

The convention further deprecated the “weakness” of the Weizmann policy in dealing with the British government, and demanded that no negotiations should be held with that government until the White Paper on Palestine is withdrawn.

Mordecai Danzis was re-elected President of the American Revisionists; the vice-presidents are Elias Ginsberg of New York and L. Altman of Detroit; Israel Posnansky of New York is national secretary, and J. Lacknow of New York is treasurer.

A resolution expressing sorrow and regret at the death of Lord Melchett was passed at the convention.
