Zionist Executive Issues Appeal to Revisionists on Eve of Kattowitz Conference

Download PDF for this date

On the eve of the conference of the Revisionist Party Council, to be held in Kattowitz on March 19-20, the Zionist Executive has published a warning and appeal to the Shekel-paying Revisionists who are to attend the Conference.

The World Union of Zionist Revisionists is composed of members who acquire the Shekel and adhere to the Zionist Organization, as well as those who do not buy the Shekel and who do not accept membership of the Zionist Organization. Both sections are to meet together at Kattowitz in order to consider the future of the Union in view of the recent decision of the Congress Court in Berlin on January 5th, which suspended the Revisionist Union as a separate Union within the Zionist Organization.

The Zionist Executive’s appeal invites the Revisionists who adhere to the Zionist Organization, to examine anew their fundamental relations towards the Zionist Organization. They are asked to consider their position in the light of the verdict of the Congress Court declaring the Revisionist Union no longer a separate Union.

The Zionist Executive’s statement concludes with the expression of hope that the Revisionists will unequivocally accept the laws and decisions of the Organization and so make possible a restoration of Zionist unity. It adds that the Zionist Executive wishes to dispel the erroneous belief that there is any attempt to drive them out of the movement, but that, on the contrary, they have every opportunity of assisting in the attainment of internal peace and the strengthening of the Zionist Organization in the present difficult period.
