New York (Aug. 20)
Failure of the United Nations to arrive at a satisfactory solution of the Palestine problem will “undoubtedly” bring a Jewish boycott of British goods and services, Col. Morris J. Mendelsohn, chairman of the executive board of the United Zionist-Revisionists of America, declared at a press conference here. He denounced the recent arrests of 40-odd Revisionist leaders in Palestine.
The Labor Zionist Organization of America today issued a statement calling for Arab-Jewish peace in Palestine, based on mutual respect, and lauded the efforts of Haganah, the Jewish militia, to forestall widespread anti-Jewish action by Arab bands. The statement also called upon Britain to return to Palestine the 4,500 refugees who have been held aboard “hell ships” off the coast of France for three weeks.
