Deadlock over Separation of Israeli Cabinet Ministers from Zionist Executive Continue

Download PDF for this date

The deadlock over whether members of the Israeli Cabinet shall continue to remain on the executive of the World Zionist Organization continued throughout the day with the crisis growing in intensity hourly. The American delegates, headed by Z.O.A. president Dr. Emmanuel Neumann, have threatened to resign if the Cabinet members remain on the executive. (No further report of the Committee proceedings had been received at the time the Bulletin went to press. See earlier reports on pages 1, 2 and 3.)

An agreement was reached tonight by inter-party negotiation on the allocation of functions to the Jerusalem and New York branches of the Zionist executive. The executive’s treasury department will be housed in Jerusalem, but the treasurer will be a General Zionist, probably an American.

The main economic and investment department will be located in the United States, where the branch will have its own public relations department and have complete autonomy in the Western Hemisphere. A special branch of the organization department as well as a branch office of the Youth Aliyah will be established in America. Al1 agreements reached through inter-party bargaining are subject to ratification by the full Actions Committee session.
