Irgun Denies Extremists Threatened Statesmen, Military Figures; Says Intelligence “lies”

Download PDF for this date

The Irgun Zvai Leumi radio “Voice of Fighting Zion” today described as “lies” the reports by the British Intelligence Service that Jewish extremists had threatened to assassinate high-ranking statesmen and military figures.

The broadcast welcomed the recent announcement by the Haganah that it had not launched an attack on the Irgun and the Sternists, although it was considering action to curb the extremists, and appealed to the Haganah to join them in a “holy war” against the British oppressors!”
