Z.O.A. Executive Repudiates Press Reports That Zionists Favor Partition of Palestine

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.
