Zionist Revisionist Leaders Hold Conference to Work out Agreement Between Two Opposing Views on Ques

Download PDF for this date

The Executive Committee of the Revisionist World Union is to meet to-day in Calais, it is understood, in order to try to work out an agreement between the two opposing views in the movement about the future of Revisionism, whether Revisionists should secede from the Zionist World Organisation or remain inside it.

Compromise resolutions have been introduced by Revisionist organisations in various countries, with a views to avoiding a split. Mr. Robert Stricker, the leader Austrian Revisionists, is making great efforts to reunite the movement, and it is believed that a tentative agreement has already been reached, providing that the Revisionist World Union should conduct an independent political and practical activity on behalf of Palestine, but should not leave the Zionist World Organisation.

The Executive Committee will also consider at this meeting the question of the next World Conference of the Revisionist World Organisation, which, according to present arrangements, is to be held in December, and it is possible that if an agreement is reached, the World Conference may be postponed for a considerable time, while the activity of the Union will be carried on in accordance with the lines of the agreement.

In my letter to the London Revisionist Executive, Mr. Jabotinsky, the President of the Revisionist World Union, said in his statement to the J.T.A. about a fortnight ago, announcing his decision to resume immediately his functions as President, I have declared that the paramount task of the Executive Committee shall henceforth consist of working out the bases of an agreement between the two opposing views about the future of Revisionism. The agreement, he added, must include the essentials of both viewpoints, in order to satisfy the conscience of both camps, to avoid a split in Revisionism and to reinforce its unity.
