Church Peace Union Condemns Anti-semitism; Asks for Larger Refugee Immigration to U.S.

Resolutions favoring “a large increase” in refugee immigration to the United States within the present quota law and calling for the withdrawal of the British White Paper were unanimously adopted by the Church Peace Union at the annual meeting of its Board of Trustees this week, it was announced today.

A resolution condemning anti-Semitism in the United States was also adopted at the meeting. “The Church Peace Union,” the resolution reads “again express its deep concern because of the growth of anti-Semitism in the United States, not only because pledge of fascism, reactionism, and other subversive movements. It is used as a weapon to overthrow the civilization based upon the Bible and substitute for it a brutal paganism.”

The resolution opposing the British White Paper reads: “The Church Peace Union calls for the withdrawal of the White Paper denying immigration into Palestine after March 31, 1944. It ardently requests all humanity-loving people to demand liberal immigration into Palestine according to its absorptive capacity within the content of the Balfour Declaration and the Mandate of the League of Nations, and urges our Government to use its good offices to this end.”
