“haolom” Garries On: Suspension Decision Withdrawn.

Download PDF for this date

The “Haolom”, the Hebrew official weekly organ of the Zionist Organisation, which was to have stopped publication this week, according to the decision of the last meeting of the Actions Committee, will continue to appear as usual, the J.T.A. is informed to-day. Arrangements have been concluded which ensure the further undisturbed publication of the journal.

The announcement of the intention to suspend the “Haolom” caused perturbation among Zionists all over the world. The discontinuance of the “Haolom” is one of the drastic courses decided upon because of the shrinkage in the financial resources of the Zionist Organisation, one Zionist paper wrote recently. We cannot believe, however, it went on, that the last word has been heard. The discontinuance is to begin at the end of March. We refuse to think that there will not be found lovers of Hebrew to step in and save what the attenuated resources of the Zionist movement cannot maintain. Once before, under similar circumstances, the “Haolom” was suspended, but means were found to step in to the breach and enable it to resume. We are confident that the same or similar means will zain be found to save the situation.
