Revisionists for Palestine Break with Zionists

Download PDF for this date

The executive committee of the World Revisionist Union today ordered that no member of the Revisionist party of Palestine be permitted to remain a member of what the Revisionists characterized as a “body dominated by a section practicing violence within the Palestine Yishub”. Accordingly, the Revisionists stated, Kenesseth Israel, the Assefath Hanivcharim and the Vaad Leumi no longer represent “the totality of the Zionist Yishub and the Revisionists will not agree to a joint representative body unless the basis of such a group is changed.”

The Revisionists demanded that any representative group include members of all the parties, but must exclude the possibility of “domination by Socialists or any other party.”

Early in March, the Revisionist World Union sent an ultimatum to the Vaad Leumi expiring on March 15, demanded that the Vaad Leumi condemn the internecine strife in the ranks of Palestine workers. The ultimatum was ignored.
