U.S. Revisionists Will Back Jabotinsky in New Group

Download PDF for this date

Ten days after the Palestine Revisionists informed Vladimir Jabotinsky that they would back him in the creation of an independent Zionist Organization, the Zionist Revisionists of America, at a meeting of their national executive committee yesterday in New York, adopted a resolution in similar vein and cabled Jabotinsky that “we are with you for the creation of an independent Zionist Organization. Lead us; we will follow”.

The executives of the Palestine Revisionists, the Brith Trumpeldor, the Revisionist youth organization, the Revisionist workers and the editors of the Haam, Palestine organ of the Revisionists, cabled Jabotinsky on July 21 that “we are with you as the creator of a new Zionist Organization”.

Jabotinsky has taken a six months leave of absence from the party, presumably because of internal differences as to the future Revisionist attitude to the World Zionist Organization. The Revisionist stand with regard to the Zionist Organization is to be decided at a world Zionist Revisionist conference in December.

On the other hand Meer Grossman, Jabotinsky’s lieutenant, told a press conference in London on July 29 that Jabotinsky remains the head of the party and expressed confidence that all internal differences would be settled satisfactorily.
