Jewish Agency Hails Passage of Resolution by Congress

Download PDF for this date

Official spokesmen for Palestine’s Jews today hailed passage by Congress of the Palestine resolution urging free entry of Jews into this country and unrestricted land settlement.

A Jewish Agency representative told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the action of Congress would be “a powerful counterblast to the anti-Zionist designs. As against the bogging down of the issue in fact-finding, the Congressional resolution establishes the cardinal principle that Palestine is the solution of the Jewish problem,” he added.

A statement by the Jewish National Council said: “The resolution is an encouragement to the Yishuv in the struggle into which it has been dragged against its will by the British Government’s present policy. The Yishuv hopes that the resolution will influence the United States Government to fulfil the declarations and pledges given by the President and both major parties.”
