Jewish Clandestine Radio Warns Britain of a “defensive War” in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

The British Government was told today by the Jewish underground radio that Jews may be compelled to “fight a defensive war” in Palestine and that the Jewish people “had no desire to be a subject race in exile.”

“No matter what decisions are taken the Jewish people will return and build their homeland,” the announcer said. “The alternative facing the British Government is whether the Jews are to continue to build and create, or fight a defensive war. They have full confidence in their strength and power.”
