Three former member of the Anglo-American. Committee of Inquiry on Palestine–Frank W. Buxton, Bartley C. Crum and James G. McDonald–today attacked the Committee for Justice and Peace in the Holy Land, charging that this anti-partition group “has backed and encouraged Arab aggression in Palestine and has taken an active part in the attempt to sabotage the United Nations decision on Palestine.”

The three one-time members of the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine simultaneously greeted “with sorrow and bewilderment” the appointment of William Phillips, their former colleague on the Anglo-American investigation group.
