Share in U.p.a. Funds for Palestine Revisionists Urged by Jabotinsky

A share of the United Palestine Appeal’s funds for the Zionist-Revisionists in Palestine was demanded tonight by Vladimir Jabotinsky, president of the New Zionist Organization, speaking at a rally in the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It was his last address here before leaving for a tour of South America.

Jabotinsky said that although the Revisionists comprised an important part of Palestine’s Jewish population they were treated like “Israel’s step-children.” The UPA, he said, was not a truly united appeal because the Revisionists were excluded. The N.Z.O. leader also urged Jews to provide funds to help Reich Jews escape expulsion to Lublin by transporting them to Palestine. “You raise the funds and the American Friends of a Jewish Palestine will show you how,” he said.
