Turkey Supports Jewish Colonization in Palestine for First Time

Download PDF for this date

The first official Turkish declaration of sympathy with Jewish colonization in Palestine, a land before the war part of the Turkish Empire, was given today when Premier Jelal Bayar visited the Palestine stand at the Smyrna fair — the first holy land exhibit at the fair — and expressed hope for the success of Jewish upbuilding work. Some 10,000 persons daily are visiting the stand.
