Proskauer Says “no Jewish Question Involved” in American Loan to Britain

Declaring that “there is no Jewish question involved” in the issue of a loan to Britain now being considered by Congress, Joseph M. Proskauer, president of the American Jewish Committee, yesterday urged in a telegram to Representative Sol Bloom, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, that the loan be considered solely from the viewpoint of policy most beneficial to America.

The Jewish War Veterans of the United States today issued a statement denying reports that it was opposed to the British loan. “As much as we are disheartened by Great Britain’s unjust and illegal handling of the Palestinian issue, we are not opposed to any measure which will help promote world peace and international cooperation,” the J.W.V. said.
