Declaring that the American people must help open the doors of Palestine as a reguge for the persecuted Jews of Germany, Charles Edward Russell, president of the Pro-Palestine Federation of America, declared in an article for the January-February issue of the Pro-Palestine Herald that ???out duty and immediate objectives are made clear: To agitate for the opening of the doors of Palestine. To provide the funds to help the needy to reach Palestine. To build, develop and further Palestine, the way out, the hope of the distressed, the rational relief for an otherwise hopeless situation.??? Mr. Russell also advocated the continuance of the anti-German boycott and the passage of Congressman Samuel Dickstein???s bill to admit persons fleeing from religious persecution.
