Post-war World Will Not Be Free if Palestine is Not Jewish, Manifesto Says

“The new world which will be established on the ruins of the old, will not be a world of justice and freedom if it does not bring freedom and redemption to the Jewish nation by fulfillment of the Balfour Declaration,” says a manifesto issued here today by the Jewish National Council of Palestine.

The manifesto points out that during the twenty-five years since the Balfour Declamation was issued, ” Jewish immigration into Palestine has proved the Jewish nation’s resolute will to use the rights given it by the Balfour Declaration, and its readiness to make any sacrifices, It has also proved the tremendous possibilities and blessings for the country derived from Jewish immigration, which has widened Palestine’s absorptivity without harming the rights of the local population.”
