October 15, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Moscow “Emmes” contains a letter from a second rate Jewish author, named Persov, who declares that many allegely Communist boys and young men’s organizations are really Zionist but camouflage themselves under communist names.

He demands that steps be taken to check what he terms the poisonous Zionist propaganda.

According to unconfirmed reports, the publication of the letter was dictated by higher officials in order to furnish a basis for the further persecution of Zionism.
