Mexican Government Will Support Demand for a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine

The Mexican Government will support the Zionist demand for the establishment of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, Dr. Nahum Goldmann, representative of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, reported here today upon his return from Mexico.

During his stay in Mexico, Dr. Goldmann was received by Foreign Secretary Ezekiel Padilla and by Secretary of Interior Miguel Aleman. “Both assured me that Mexico is in full accord with Zionist aspirations and will support wholeheartedly the restoration of the Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine,” Dr. Goldmann said.

A Mexican pro-Palestine committee was formed under the chairmanship of Deputy Antonic Manero, noted Mexican economist, and with the aid of Isidro Febela, Governor of the State of Mexico, who was an ardent supporter of Jewish claims on Palestine when he represented Mexico in the League of Nations at Geneva.
