Methodist Conference Demands Fulfillment of Jewish National Home Pledge

A resolution calling on the United States to take “appropriate action” so that the “international commitments made to the Jews in connection with a homeland in Palestine may be fulfilled at the earliest possible time,” was adopted unanimously by the Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference of the Methodist Church, representing more than a million members of the Methodist Church in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware.

This was announced today by Dr. Daniel L. Marsh, President of Boston University, who introduced the resolution, which demanded fulfillment of the pledge of a Jewish National Home “in the interest of justice, humanitarianism and future world peace,” and condemned “all racial and religious bigotry and intolerance as undemocratic and in-Christian.”
