(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Dr. Stephen S. Wise, vice-president of the Zionist General Council, in an interview with the representative of the Jewish Daily Bulletin commented on the resolution adopted by the General Council with regard to the recommendations of the Joint Palestine Survey Commission.

“The resolutions will always be memorable for having saved the fundamental ideals of Zionism, provided the leadership treats the resolutions as a mandate and not as a scrap of paper,” Dr. Wise said.

“What the cause now needs is neither counsel nor prestige, but honest cooperation and thoroughgoing support. The Berlin resolutions means that the Agency is heartily welcomed by self-respecting Zionists on terms which will safeguard the unimpingable purposes and principles of the Zionist movement.”
