Two Histadruth Leaders Expelled from Palestine Labor Party

Download PDF for this date

The expulsion of two Histadruth leaders from the Jewish Labor Party of Palestine for breaking the discipline of the party was announced here today following David Ben-Gurion’s warning that the party will either have to reorganize itself or be dissolved as a result of internal dissension. The two expelled loaders are Aaron Zisling and Isaac Tobenkin.

A review of Zionist activities in America was given here today by Ben-Gurion in a four-hour address before the Small Zionist Actions Committee. At the same time a Laborite conference opened today in Tel Aviv to consider Ben-Gurion’s proposal to abolish all fractions within the Jewish Labor Party. The split in the ranks of the party is due chiefly to differences of opinion over the agreement reached with the Revisionists on the question of safety of the Yishuv. While one section of the Jewish Labor Party approved of this agreement, other sections opposed it, with the result that party is split into three camps.
