Jabotinsky Denies Advocating Arabs’ Expulsion from Palestine

Download PDF for this date

Palestine will always remain a state with more than one nationality, declares Vladimir Jabotinsky, leader of the Zionist-Revisionists, in a letter published yesterday in the “Reichspost,” which is a reply to that paper’s Catholic Palestine correspondent who had stated that Jabotinsky in his Tel Aviv speech had said that the Palestine Arabs have the desert where they can go to pasture with their camels.

Jabotinsky emphatically denies having said this and adds that the expulsion of the Arabs from Palestine is impossible. He insists, however, on the creation of a Jewish majority by immigration and that then a modus vivendi be found to safeguard Arab rights because no Zionist group is opposed to peace.
