Zionists’ Resolution on Germany Riles Beobachter

Download PDF for this date

The resolution on Germany adopted by the Eighteenth Zionist Congress at Prague is a “shocking interference in the internal political affairs of Germany” declared today’s issue of the Voelkischer Beobachter, personal organ of Chancellor Hitler and leading Nazi paper.

The Beobachter article, which was featured most prominently, insisted that “Jewry is instigating a new campaign against Germany,” adding that the united front of Zionist Jewry the world over is trying to use the sovereignty of the other world powers in the interests of the Jews.

“These gentlemen are mistaken,” says the Beobachter, “in believing that such untruthful attacks and provocative resolutions will alleviate the situation of the German Jews.”

The Nazi paper stated that the text of the Congress resolution would be rigorously examined in Germany and that Germany is watching closely to see what actual conclusions will be drawn from the resolution.

The Congress resolution on Germany, the result of a compromise agreement between the various parties with the exception of the two Revisionist groups, has aroused a storm of opposition within the Congress itself because it is considered much too mild.
