Polish Revisionists Disturb Zionist Parley

Download PDF for this date

Zionist-Revisionists used pigeons and a stench bomb, as well as their voices, to disturb a conference of the Polish Zionist Organization today with protests against what they called discrimination in allotment of Palestine immigration certificates.

The disturbances occurred while Isaac Gruenbaum, member of the World Zionist Executive, was addressing the 400 delegates on the Zionist situation in Palestine. The Revisionists shouted, “Give us certificates” distributing leaflets, releasing pigeons and throwing the stench bomb.

After they had been removed from the hall, Mr. Gruenbaum said that the Palestine Jewish community had emerged from the disorders of 1936 stronger both economically and politically. He greeted the parley in the name of the Zionist Executive.
