Download PDF for this date

The Palestine Communist Party regrets its past policy of opposing Jewish immigration and condoning Arab disturbances, and now supports unrestricted immigration and the establishment of a Jewish national home, Meir Slouim, a leader of the party, said today.

Addressing a conference of the “Communist Education Association,” Slouim also advocated support of the “territorial concentration” of Jews in Palestine and said that “there is no conflict between Jewish and Arab interests in Palestine, nor between the demand for the resteration of Jewish rights in Europe and the fight for immigration and upbuilding of the Jewish national home.”
