Palestine Jews Pleased with Carlsbad Congress, London Times Hears

August 27, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The London “Times” had a dispatch the other day from its Jerusalem correspondent who reported that Jewish circles in Palestine were very much pleased with the change in the personnel of the Zionist Executive made at the Carlsbad Congress.

Palestine Jews, the correspondent states, were particularly pleased with the elimination of M. Ussishkin and the substitution in his stead of of Colonel Kish from whom they are expecting greater achievments. Mr. Ussishkin, who was at the head of the Zionist Organization in Palestine since 1915, was not over popular, he says.

It is believed here that this report comes from the “Zionist correspondent” of the “Times”, who is known for his hostility to M. Ussishkin.
