U.S. Senator James M. Mead of New York has joined the Committee for a Jewish Army of Stateless and Palestinian Jews, it was announced today by G.A. Wechsler, National Secretary of the Committee.

Senator Mead, in joining the Committee, said: “For years we made the mistake of trying to compromise with our democratic ideals. Today, we are repeating that mistake. We are not fully mobilizing our moral resources…Less appeasement and more vision, less fear and more courage – these are the urgent needs of the moment. And there in Palestine is one vital instance where we can demonstrate such statesmanship and vision and courage.”
