Dissolution of Jewish Agency Executive Demanded by General Zionists “b” Conference

A resolution demanding the resignation of the executive of the Jewish Agency and the convocation of a body authorized to elect another executive composed of representatives of parties supporting the demand for the establishment of a Jewish State within an undivided Palestine, was adopted today at an all-Palestine conference of the General Zionists, group “B.”

The resolution was passed following addresses voicing severe criticism of the present composition of the Jewish Agency executive. The conference also approved the non-participation of the General Zionists “B” in the Jewish National Council of Palestine. A resolution to this effect stated that the Council does not represent the Jews of Palestine and is not authorized to speak in their behalf.
