B’nai Zion Order Opposes Partition of Palestine; Backs Dr. Silver’s Political Policy

A resolution backing Dr. Abba Hillel Silver’s policy on Palestine and emphasizing that the American Zionist Emergency Council must be considered as the sole body in the United States “to represent the Zionist viewpoint to official American circles,” was adopted by the administrative council of the B’nai Zion Order, it was announced here today by the organization.

Another resolution opposed the partitioning of Palestine, and emphasized adherence of B’nai Zion to the principles of the Biltmore Declaration. “Only the forthcoming World Zionist Congress has the right to deal with any proposed partition plans,” the resolution said.
