Download PDF for this date

Following revocation of the Palestinian citizenships of Abba Achimeier and Dr. J. Yevin, who are at present serving jail sentences for membership in an alleged terrorist organization, the British Habiryonim, the government today announced that notice had been served on Joshua Lichter, Revisionist also jailed on the same charge, that his citizenship also would be revoked.

Lichter was notified, the government stated, that unless he can show cause to the contrary, he will be deprived of his citizenship on March 1.

Action of the government in the case of Achimeier has provoked widespread protest from Revisionist groups all over the world. The municipal council of Tel Aviv also adopted a resolution of protest.
