Nazi Radio Excoriates Weizmann on Arrival in New York

Download PDF for this date

The Nazi-controlled Zeesen radio, in an Arabic broadcast, today used such terms as “international criminal Jew” and “head of international Jewish gangs” in describing the arrival of Dr. Chaim Weizmann in New York on Saturday.

The broadcaster expressed resentment particularly at Dr. Weizmann’s statement that the Jews and Arabs in Palestine had put aside their differences and joined in the fight for Britain. The broadcaster declared: “The Arabs will not be deceived by such Jewish English tricks and the Arabs will not allow a mean Jew to speak on their behalf.”
