Lipsky Sees Huge Migration of Jews

Granting even a slight let-up in the political and economic conditions in Europe, the status of the Jews there is so untenable that during the next decade there will be a forced Jewish emigration of the magnitude of the Russian exodus of 1880, according to Louis Lipsky, national chairman of the American Palestine Campaign, and American member of the World Zionist Executive and of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, who returned yesterday on the Leviathan.

In his statement Mr. Lipsky said: “A survey of Jewish conditions abroad forces the conclusion that, granting even a slight let-up in the political and economic persecution of Jews in one or more countries, we shall undoubtedly have to face during the next decade a forced Jewish immigration of the magnitude of the Russian Jewish exodus beginning in 1880, but other than Palestine there is no country prepared or willing to open the door to any substantial Jewish settlement. In fact, all other doors are practically closed. The preparation of a national home for Jews is therefore an imperative immediate necessity.”
