Group ‘b’ Backs Revisionists in Congress Fight

Download PDF for this date

The American Group “B” made public a statement Friday attacking as “inadequate, deceptive and insincere” the platform adopted by the administrative committee of the Zionist Organization of America for the American delegation to the coming World Zionist Congress.

The statement, issued over the names of Jacob de Haas, Isaac Allen and Rabbi Louis I. Newman, also scored “the tactics of the Actions Committee at its recent Jerusalem meeting in maneuvering the elimination from the Zionist Organization of a group of loyal and devoted Zionists numbering 190,000.”

This committee “has, together with the Zionist Executive, forfeited all claim to confidence by making it impossible, in subservience to the Histadruth oligarchy, for the Revisionists to participate” in the congress, the declaration charged.
