Revisionists Accuse Reich Zionist Paper

Download PDF for this date

The Executive of the Zionist Revisionist party today indicted the Judische Rundschau, organ of German Zionists, for having allegedly carried false and libelous statements about the recent Revisionist conference at Krakow. Complaining that the peace between the factions was broken by this act, the Revisionists submitted the indictment to the World Zionist Executive and demanded “exemplary punishment” for the German Zionist paper.

The Rundschau is alleged to have said in commenting on the Krakow conference that “some Revisionists resisted the effort to send a message of sympathy to the terroristic leader Aba Achimeier.

An immediate correction of this statement in the Rundschau was demanded by the Revisionist leaders. This is the first time that a breach of the peace agreements between the Zionist factions has come up for action. Under the Zionist constitution the case will be submitted to the Congress Court of Honor.

Achimeier, now serving an eighteen months’ jail sentence in Palestine, was one of three Revisionists accused of the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff. He was accused of having been the intellectual inspiration for the murder, but was acquitted.
