New York (Jul. 17)
The executive committee of the Zionist Organization of America, commenting on recent press reports which alleged that unnamed Zionist leaders in this country favored partition as a solution of the Palestine problem, has adopted a resolution repudiating such views and pointing out that the Z.O.A. adheres to the Biltmore program, calling for the establishment of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, it was announced today.
The resolution was adopted by a special meeting of the executive committee, presided over by Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, at which David Ben Gurion rendered a report on political conditions in London and Jerusalem, and a full-scale discussion on Zionist policy ensued.
