SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

THE “SUPERFICIAL ENTHUSIASM” WITH WHICH THE JEWISH MASSES IN POLAND HAVE GREETED THE PROPOSED CREATION OF A JEWISH STATE IN PALESTINE’S DEPRECATED BY YIDDISH NEWSPAPERS TODAY.

THE HAINT, WHICH FAVORS ACCEPTANCE OF THE STATE IN PRINCIPLE, VOICES STRONG OPPOSITION TO ALL DETAILS OF ITS PROPOSED ESTABLISHMENT.

IN AN EDITORIAL CAPTIONED “ROSES AND THORNS,” THE ZIONIST DAILY DEMANDS A FIGHT FOR THE MAXIMUM CONCESSIONS OBTAINABLE, NOTABLY LARGER TERRITOry.

“UNTIL THIS HAS BEEN ACHIEVED,” THE EDITORIAL STATES,” WE SHALL NOT RELIEVE ENGLAND OF HER OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE MANDATE. LET’S REMOVE THE THORNS BUT NOT REJECT THE ROSE.”

DER MOMENT COUNSELS THAT WHETHER THE ROYAL COMMISSION’S REPORT IS ACCEPTED OR REJECTED, IT MUST BE FOUGHT WITH THE “UTMOST DISCIPLINE.”

DOS NAJE WORT CONDEMNS THE PROPOSALS AS FAILING TO SATISFY JEWISH NATIONAL NEEDS. CHWILA, LWOW ORGAN OF THE EAST GALICIA ZIONIST ORGANIZATION, URGES THAT THE REPORT BE GIVEN CAREFUL CONSIDERATION, ADVISING THAT “THE MERE SOUND OF A JEWISH STATE MUST NOT DEPRIVE US OF OUR REASONING FACULTIES.”
