Dissolution of Jewish Agency Demanded by Conference of American League for Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Former Senator Guy M. Gillette last night was re-elected president of the American League for a Free Palestine as the Conference on Hebrew Liberation sponsored by the League closed after two days of consideration of resolutions and programs for immediate American action on the Palestine problem. The conference delegates chose a national executive board of 35 members to serve during the present year.

One of the final acts at the last plenary session was adoption of a resolution urging the dissolution of the Jewish Agency and calling upon Zionists to join in the formation of a Provisional Government for Palestine. The Jewish Agency was accused of promoting “appeasement of and collaboration with the British oppresors.”
