Jabotinsky Assails Council at London Rally

Download PDF for this date

Addressing a Jewish mass meeting at Kings. way Hall tonight, Vladimir Jabotinsky, head of the New Zionist Organization, assailed the proposed Palestine legislative council as a negation of democracy.

The council, Mr. Jabotinsky said, would only serve to subordinate 16,000,000 Jews throughout the world to the will of 700,000 Arabs. He asserted that the proposed assembly, since it would offer a daily platform for the airing of conflicts, would inflame passions of the population.
