U.S. Charged by Hadassah Leaders with Secret Manipulations Against Partition Decision

Charges that the U.S. State Department is using its resources “behind closed doors” to achieve support for its anti-partition position were voiced here last night at a mass meeting called by Hadassah at the Manhattan Center. The meeting also featured a memorial to Dr. Haim Yassky, late director of the Hadassah Medical Organization in Palestine, who was killed by Arabs last week.

Hadassah leaders who recently returned from Palestine declared that the Jewish Government in Palestine is a fact and that it has already begun to exercise its powers in the areas allotted the Jews by the original U.N. partition decision. Partition could have been achieved with very little bloodshed, they reported.
