Jewish Agency Urges Revisionists to Return to Ranks of Zionist Organization

Download PDF for this date

Details of the negotiations between the Jewish Agency for Palestine and the Revisionists for the latter’s return into the ranks of the World Zionist Organization were revealed here today in a statement by the Revisionist headquarters.

“As a condition for full cooperation in defense matters,” the Jewish Agency demanded that the New Zionist Organization enter the parent Zionist Organization, the statement declares. The NZO replied that it appreciated the necessity of cooperation between both Zionist organizations in matters concerning the Jewish National Home, but “is unable to bring the proposal of the Jewish Agency before the world convention of the NZO unless the Agency first polishes a statement of its policy for the period of the war and after, as well as on the form of the establishment of a united Jewish representation at the eventual peace conference.”

Though the Jewish Agency replied that it is unable to issue such a statement, the Revisionist announcement today declares that “the New Zionist Organization will continue and increase its efforts to establish full unity within the Jewish nation and in the Zionist movement on the basis of State Zionism.”
