Palestine Has Room for Greater Number of Jews Says Dr. Weizmann

Download PDF for this date

Palestine today can absorb a far greater number of Jews than the 200,000 already there, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, world Zionist leader, said in a radio address Sunday over the Columbia network.

“A few weeks ago I was in Palestine,” he said. “I saw there men and women with heads high and eyes gleaming, offering a remarkable contrast to the dejection and tension so common in Europe. Palestine is prosperous! These are the magic words that are cabled across continents to incredulous people suffering from the depression.”

Now that Palestine has emerged successfully from the experimental stage, he stated, there is an obligation upon the Jewish people and upon the whole world to deal adequately with Palestine in a program for the constructive solution of the Jewish problem.

Dr. Weizmann has come here to be guest of honor at the Jewish Day July 3, at the Century of Progress Exposition in Chicago.
