Tel Aviv (Aug. 25)
Mayor Israel Rokach who is presently detained at the Latrun camp along with scores of other Jewish leaders, mostly Revisionists, asked the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today, through his private secretary, to deny in his behalf that he is a Revisionist leader, as has been claimed in advertisements in New York newspapers released over his signature.
“I was never a Revisionist,” his message to the J.T.A. said. “I never belonged to that party, and the signature (used in the ads) is forged.”
