Download PDF for this date

The existing agreement between the Mapai, Palestine Jewish Labor Party, and the Hashomer Hazair, left-wing group, which covered the latter’s participation in the various bodies of the Histadruth, has been cancelled by a special resolution adopted by the Mapai, it was learned here today.

The resolution, which states that “the Hashomer Hazair’s behavior towards the Histadruth and its attitude towards the Mapai has morally cancelled the agreement,” will be presented to the next Mapai conference for a final vote, it was announced. A statement by the Hashomer Hazair is expected to be published in its organ, “Mishmar,” which will appear on July 30.
