Harold Laski Says British Refusal to Allow Jewish Army is “relic of Appeasement”

“That the British Government should seek to deny the Jews the right to die as a fighting people seems to me to be one of the most tragic relics of an outworn, indefensible policy of appeasement,” Harold Laski, famous British economist, stated today in a message addressed to a trade union conference which is to be held in Liverpool on Sunday to support the demand for a Jewish military force and a home guard in Palestine.

Messages were also sent by Lord Strobolgi, James Walker, British Labor Party leader, and by several members of parliament, including A. Creech Jones and Miss Eleanor Rathbone.
