Jewish State Based on Partition of Palestine is Not Acceptable to Jewish Agency

The Jewish Agency is opposed to any partition scheme for Palestine, even if it should provide for the establishment of a Jewish state in part of the country, David Ben-Gurion, chairman of the Agency executive, stated today addressing the Small Zionist Actions Committee.

Ben-Gurion announced that the Agency has decided to convoke a meeting of the large Zionist Actions Committee, with the participation of Zionist representatives from many countries, to discuss pressing post-war problems.

Today’s session of the committee was also addressed by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, a member of the Agency executive, who reported on the activities of American Zionist groups. The American Government and public, Dr. Goldmann said, are sympathetic to Zionist aims.
