Jewish Agency, in Cable to U.s.government, Charges Britain with Terror in Palestine

The British Administration of Palestine was accused of “introducing a regime of terror with a view to intimidating the Jews of Palestine into submission to the White Paper policy and the cessation of Jewish immigration,” in a cable sent to Secretary of State James F. Byrnes from Jerusalem by the Jewish Agency for Palestine. This was announced today by the American Zionist Emergency Council, which received a copy of the Jewish Agency’s cable this morning. The message requests Mr. Byrnes to “bring the above information and our solemn protest to the notice of the United States Senate and House of Representatives.”
