PHILADELPHIA (Jun. 22)
The American Zionist Emergency Council Issued a statement here today following the adoption of the Palestine resolution by the republican National Convention asserting that the plank “represents a triumph for American Zionism inasmuch as it embraces the full program presented to the Resolutions Committee by the Council.
“Dr. Abba Hillel Silver,” the statement continued, “once again directed the effort to obtain a declaration which would meet the current situation regarding Israel.” The statement pointed out that “four years ago Dr. Silver’s leadership brought about the adoption of the now-historic planks on Palestine in the 1944 Republican and Democratic Party platforms.”
