Polish Exports to Palestine Exceed Imports

Download PDF for this date

Polish exports to Palestine are now ten times as great as Palestinian exports to Poland, it was reported today at a session of the foreign committee of the Polish Parliament.

The session was devoted to a discussion of the Anglo-Polish trade agreement, which also includes Palestine as a territory under British administration. The rapporteur emphasized that the British government insists that Polish exports to Palestine should be figured as a part of the Polish exports to Britain.

The Ministry of Trade is attacked severely in the Gazeta Warszawska for permitting Polish Jews to import from Palestine into Poland thirty tons of matzoh for the forthcoming Passover.

The anti-Semitic paper declared that there is plenty of flour in Poland and thus the government has no right to permit the importation of matzoh from Palestine.
