Palestine Revisionists Vote to Secede from World Z. O.

Download PDF for this date

A resolution calling upon the World Executive of the Zionist Revisionists, the opposition to the Weizmann regime, to take immediate steps to secede from the Zionist Organization, to repudiate the Jewish Agency’s negotiations with the British government, to reject the legislative assembly and to return the recently released 1,500 immigration certificates was adopted here early this morning at the conclusion of the annual conference of Palestinian Revisionists.

The measures were carried through the insistence of a fraction of the Palestine Revisionist party favoring immediate secession of the Revisionists from the Zionist Organization. The conference, which was attended by 36 delegates, elected a new central committee and a new executive.

The members of the new committee are Dr. Wolfganng von Weisl, chairman, Dr. Wunderlich, vice-chairman, Akhi Mayer, leader of the National Youth League, and Moishe Segal. The new executive consists of M. Rosov, chairman, M. Yevserov, G. Epstein and M. Weinstein.

The division among the Palestine Revisionists is the same as that in Europe, with the followers of Dr. Richard Lichtheim and Meer Grossman favoring carrying on Revisionist principles within the Zionist Organization, while the adherents of Vladimir Jabotsinky, head of the Revisionists, are evidently planning to secede at the 17th Zionist Congress after submitting their maximum program which the Congress is expected to reject.
