London Weeklies Hit Italian Anti-jewish Measures

Download PDF for this date

The New Statesman and Nation, influential weekly, asserts in an editorial today that the “notorious new decrees” against the Italian Jews represent both an extension of premier Benito Mussolini’s activities in encouraging arab nationalism in Palestine and a warning of their significance to Great Britain and France. “Once more,” the weekly declares, “the Jews have been made the scapegoats for the mistakes of rulers.”

The weekly Spectator states in an editorial that Mussolini’s declaration of war against the Jews is “contemptible and inhuman.”
