Download PDF for this date

The charge that “diplomatic pressure by the British Government” was responsible for the deportation from Turkey of Eri Jabotinsky, son of the late world leader of the New Zionist Organization, was made in a telegram sent today by the Zionist Revisionist Organization of America to the British Embassy in Washington.

The British Embassy was requested in the telegram to secure from its government detailed information “regarding the cause of the British intervention” with Turkey against Mr. Jabotinsky, as well as the place where Mr. Jabotinsky is now interned. The telegram pointed out that Mr. Jabotinsky was sent from Turkey “to some unknown British territory”.
