American Zionists Must Choose Their Own Delegation to London, Weizmann Says

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Dr. Chaim Weizmann, in a statement issued through the Jewish Agency today, denied a report from Palestine that he has invited Dr. Israel Goldstein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, and Dr. Nahum Goldmann, a member of the executive of the Jewish Agency who heads the Agency office in Washington, to come to London to assist him in his political negotiations with the British Government with regard to Palestine.

“I have invited a delegation of American Zionist leaders to come to London, but the choice of the delegates has been left to the American Zionist Emergency Council,” the statement to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency said.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews today announced that it has studied the details of the Ramach Hakovesh incident in Palestine in which one Jewish settler was killed and several wounded while resisting a raid by police searching for hidden arms. After getting acquainted with the facts, the Board expressed its support of the Jews in Palestine and declared itself ready to aid them in the fight for “their justified cause,” the announcement says.
