New York (Jul. 23)
Emphasizing that it has always deplored terrorism in Palestine, the New York Post in an editorial today says that “the real criminal that blew up the King David Hotel yesterday is a policy that has left the Jews of Palestine with no hope and no faith in the ordinary, normal ways of gaining justice.” That policy, the paper continued, must be changed.
“While we neither excuse nor condone terrorism, it is important that the atmosphere which prompts such hysterical acts be understood,” the editorial states. “It is a fact that when you leave no other course open, you get precisely such acts as the bombing of King David Hotel as the result.”
