“Beth el Makdes”, after stating that the Jewish Agency will be composed of five Zionist and five non-Zionist members says:

“Do not let the Palestine population think, on seeing that owing to the crisis in the country numerous Jews leave, that the Zionists are despairing or that their programme is being modified.

“Their endeavors at the recent Congress in Carlsbad to introduce into the Jewish Agency non-Zionists is to be considered as strong support of their programme, for instead of the Zionist Executives receiving thousands of pounds from its followers, it is now going to receive millions of pounds from the Jews of the world. And as money is, after all, the chief factor in this world, the Jewish Agency will do with the increased funds more than the Zionist Executive was ever able to do.”

The article concludes: “To unite the will of all Jews is to organize a World Congress in order to lay the foundation of assistance and union. In reality, we, the Arabs, need such a Congress badly. And if we wish to remedy the evil threatening us, the leaders of our national movement must try to convoke such a Congress here, which would take measures to arrange an opposition movement that will protect our interests and that will be able to face our strong enemy”.
