Zionist Actions Committee Session in America; Weizmann Submits Report

The present military situation in North Africa has opened, for the first time, opportunities to discuss practical Zionist questions with representatives of the United Nations, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, reported today addressing a session of members of the Zionist Actions Committee under the chairmanship of Dr. Nahum Goldmann.

Present at the session were members of the Zionist Actions Committee from the United States, Poland, Germany, Palestine, Belgium and other European countries. They represented all factions of the Zionist movement.

Reporting on the political activities which he is conducting in the United States in conjunction with other members of the World Zionist Executive residing in America and with the participation of some American Zionist leaders, Dr. Weizmann said that there is undoubtedly a friendly attitude in America to wards the practical and political aims of Zionism, but there are also some groups which oppose Zionist aspirations. He urged American Zionists to make it an integral part of their activities “to enlighten public opinion in this country on the Zionist aims and to meet squarely hostile attacks on the Zionist movement.”
