Hebrew Press Disappointed at Results of Berlin Meetings

Download PDF for this date

The Hebrew press here is disappointed at the Berlin meetings of the Zionist Actions Committee and of the Administrative Committee of the Jewish Agency. The Ha’Aretz is dissatisfied because the Berlin meetings laid too much stress on the political importance of London just when “Geneva was defending us. We need Geneva and Berlin ought to have discussed a way of increasing Geneva’s influence on the Palestine administration.”

The Doar Hayom characterizes the meeting of the Actions Committee as “a liquidation session” and attacks Dr. Chaim Weizmann for having been “converted to the policy of the B’rith Shalom.” The paper also declares that the real Zionist meeting was at Prague where the Zionist Revisionists met. The Davar, organ of the Laborites, voices disappointment at the smallness of the budget adopted by the Administrative Committee. The Davar feels that this budget will make it impossible to achieve many necessary works, particularly in agriculture. In view of that, the Davar is of the opinion that the Jewish Agency “has no right to prevent the Zionists from finding additional means for these works.”
