Download PDF for this date

Dr. Jorge Garcia Granados, chief U.H. delegate from Guatemala, tonight told 1,000 guests attending the dedication dinner of the Mizrachi Women’s Children’s Village located at Raanana, Palestine, that “Great Britain does not wish to accept the U.N. decision on Palestine, nor does she wish to respect it.” He condemned the British refusal last week to open a port to Jewish immigration, adding that “this refusal can only encourage those Arab leaders fighting the United Nations.”

Rabbi Meir Berlin, world Mizrachi leader who will return to Palestine tomorrow, urged Jewish youth in this country to join the Haganah in “defense of the infant Jewish state.” Pointing to the seriousness of the present situation in Palestine, Rabbi Berlin said that American Jewish youths must answer the “Yishuv’s call for arms, thus joining in the historic task of rebuilding the homeland.”
