Polish Government Paper Hits U.S. Jews for Asking Hull to Intercede

AMERICAN JEWS PROTESTS TO THEIR GOVERNMENT OVER PERSECUTION OF POLISH JEWS WERE ASSAILED AS ” ATTEMPTS TO INTERFERE IN THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF POLAND” BY THE GAZETA POLSKA, SEMI-OFFICIAL POLISH GOVERNMENT ORGAN, TODAY.

COMMENTING EDITORIALLY ON THE MEMORANDUM ON POLISH PERSECUTION SUBMITTED TO SECRETARY OF STATE CORDELL HULL BY A DELEGATION HEADED BY DR. STEPHEN S. WISE, THE GAZETA DECLARED:

” ATTEMPTS TO INTERFERE IN THE INTERNAL AFFAIRS OF POLAND MUST PROVOKE THE INDIGNATION OF THE POLES. THE POLICY OF THE JEWS IS SURPRISINGLY BLIND, ASKING ON THE ONE HAND POLAND’S DIPLOMATIC ASSISTANCE WITH REGARD TO PALESTINE, AND ON THE OTHER HAND OPPOSING POLAND’S EMIGRATION PLANS AND CONDUCTING AN ANTI-POLISH CAMPAIGN ABROAD.”

RETALIATION UPON POLISH JEWS FOR THE AMERICAN PROTEST WAS SUGGESTED BY ABC, CHIEF ORGAN OF THE ANTI-SEMITIC NATIONAL RADICAL PARTY, WHICH STATED THAT THE CAMPAIGN WAS UNDOUBTEDLY INSPIRED BY POLISH JEWS AND DEMANDED THE DISCOVERY AND PUNISHMENT OF THE CULPRITS.
