Zionists Query Failure to Include Palestine in Parley Agenda

Download PDF for this date

The New Palestine, organ of the Zionist Organization of America, in an editorial captioned “Why Not Palestine?” asks why Palestine is “consistently and persistently kept off the agenda of the Intergovernmental Committee, called into being for the express purpose of serving refugees’ needs.”

“Refugees go to Palestine willingly, while they go to San Domingo or the Philippine Islands only as a last resort,” the editorial declares. “It goes without saying that Palestine cannot serve for the solution of the vast number of refugees that may arise at the end of the war. But Palestine is available without delay, today, substantially. Resources are at hand that make it an outstanding opportunity to serve the refugee problem.”
