U.S. Government Asked to Send Commission to Palestine; Jewish Agency Changes Requested

Download PDF for this date

A resolution asking the U. S. Government to send a commission to Palestine to investigate the situation there was adopted yesterday at a special conference of the group of Zionist-Revisionists who left the new Zionist Organization of America as a result of differences of opinion.

Another resolution adopted by the conference asked for the reorganization of the Jewish Agency for Palestine into a “Jewish Government-in-Exile.” It also demanded that the present members of the Jewish Agency all become Palestine citizens, or otherwise be disqualified to serve in the Agency.
