British Labor Party Omits “jewish Commonwealth” from Its Resolution on Palestine

Representatives of various groups participating in the convention of the British Labor Party met here today and decided to eliminate the words “Jewish Commonwealth” from a resolution on Palestine which will be presented at the convention and substitute for them the words “Jewish Homeland.”

The decision was a compromise between differing texts offered by several groups within the Labor Party interested in the future of Palestine. Some of the resolutions asked for the establishment of Palestine as a Jewish Commonwealth.
