Revisionist Executive Calls for Close of “illegal Offices”, Nullification of Certificates

Download PDF for this date

The Executive Committee of the World Union of Zionist Revisionists has taken into its own hands the fight of the Polish Revisionist organization against the “unfair distribution of Palestine immigration certificates by the illegal Palestine office in Poland,” and has requested the Polish Revisionist Central Committee to withdraw its boycott against Zionist Funds.

The Central Committee of the Polish Revisionist Organization announced a boycott against the Palestine Foundation Fund and the Jewish National Fund until the composition of the Palestine offices shall have been legally established.

The World Zionist Congress last year decided upon the reconstitution of the Palestine offices according to the new composition of the parties. This has not yet been carried out, with the result that the distribution of the certificates and the right to enter Palestine have remained dependent upon the old administration, according to the previous strength of the parties.

The distribution of the last batch of immigration certificates aroused the ire of the Mizrachi and the middle class elements as well as the Revisionists.

In the statement issued by the World Revisionist Executive, justification for the action of the Polish Revisionists is recognized, but the latter organization is asked to withdraw its boycott and to continue its work for the funds, until the Executive shall have concluded its action.

The Executive, placing responsibility on the Zionist Executive for the present situation, proposes: To summon the Zionist Executive before the Congress Court on the charge of intentional and distinct breach of the decision of the seventeenth Congress and of sabotaging the Congress decision in the interest of the ruling parties.

Secondly, the Revisionist Executive will call upon the Congress attorney to order the dissolution of the old and illegal Palestine offices, whose period of office terminated in December, 1931; that the certificates already allocated by the above-mentioned illegal institutions should be nullified and that no certificate should be issued until the new Palestine offices have been legally constituted.

“The Executive Committee of the World Union calls the attention of the Jewish public to the consistently arbitrary conduct of the Zionist Executive and its organs which has endangered even those branches of the Jewish work of upbuilding in Palestine hitherto outside the party struggle. The attempt to wrong tens of thousands of Zionists who have contributed equally with others to the upbuilding of the Funds, could not but lead to the present lamentable state of affairs,” says the Revisionist Executive.
