Download PDF for this date

The Japanese government will interyene with the government of Manchukuo to end anti-Jewish incitement by White Guardists in that country, Vice Minister Namoru Shieemitsu assured N. E. B. Ezra, editor of Israel’s Messenger.

The Shanghai Jewish editor went to Tokio to interview Japanese authorities when news of alarming anti-Jewish agitation carried on by former Czarist officers reached this city.

Anti-Jewish agitation in Manchukuo has been centered in Harbin, where a large number of Jews who fled Soviet Russia settled. Czarist officers and soldiers also flocked to Harbin, where they serve as mercenary soldiers for the Japanese and formerly for the Manchurian war lords.

White Guard newspapers in Harbin have been circulating anti-Jewish propaganda, declaring that the Jews are systematically betraying the Japanese and are plotting the death of Japanese officials. They also accuse the Jews of being Soviet spies.
