Shertok Answers Criticism of Executive

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Last night, Moshe Shertok, member of the World Zionist Executive, replied to criticism levelled against the executive during the general debate. He emphasized immigration gains in the past two years as an achievement of the executive.

Shertok stressed the necessity of a united political front in Palestine. Discussing security, he announced the executive has taken steps to increase the number of Jewish policemen and that the Jerusalem police force will be predominantly Jewish as soon as Jewish recruits now in training join the force.

He defended the Palestine-German transfer agreement as a method for Jews emigrating from Germany to Palestine to take their capital with them.

He admonished those who demand a Jewish State in Palestine not to forget that there is another nationality in the country to be considered.
