Actions Body Set to Open Deliberations

Download PDF for this date

Much was going on behind the scenes in Jerusalem today on the eve of the opening of the sessions of the Zionist Actions Committee which is to decide many momentous problems affecting the future of the Zionist Movement. The most pressing of these problems is whether the Revisionists are to be ousted from the Zionist organization or a round-table conference is to be called of representatives of all Zionist groups, before the election campaign to the World Zionist Congress begins, in order to make a last attempt to attain unity in the Zionist organization.


The Laborite leaders are especially busy today, holding conferences to decide what their attitude should be at the Actions Committee sessions now that the Histadruth referendum has resulted in rejection of the peace agreements with the Revisionists.

Negotiations were carried on all day long today between General Zionists and the Mizrachi leaders in an effort to reach an understanding for united a### at the Actions Committee meeting. Both the General Zionists and the Mizrachists are aggravated over the fact that the Histadruth has voted not to rectify any peace agreement with the Revisionists.


The majority of the General Zionists in Palestine are definitely opposed to the change the Zionist Executive has made in the text of the Shekel, it was indicated here today. It is understood that the Mizrachi and the General Zionists will vote at the Actions Committee for the convocation of a round-table conference, if a suggestion is made to this effect.

While the leaders of the different groups in the Zionist movement were preparing themselves for the expected fight at the Actions Committee sessions, the rank and file of the Jewish population in Palestine did not display any interest at all in the fact that the Actions Committee is to open the sessions in Jerusalem.
