Palestine Visas Asked of King by Rumanians

Download PDF for this date

A plea to the King of England for assistance in gaining admission to Palestine, was sent today by 200 Jewish students of Rumania. A copy of the request was also sent by the students to Queen Marie of Rumania, asking her to support the appeal.

The students, who are anxious to create a model colony in Palestine, have directed their appeal to the King of England in connection with his Jubilee. The appeal reads:

“Heaven has decreed to bestow His grace on Your Majesty that you may celebrate in full vigor and splendor the twenty-fifth anniversary of Your Majesty’s ascendance to the Throne of the British Empire.

“When the pillars of the world are tottering mankind looks eagerly towards the solid, unshaken foundation of the Empire Your Majesty is reigning over, and 200 Hebrew students implore Your Majesty, on the occasion of Your Majesty’s Jubilee, to kindly dispose that there be delivered to them certificates for establishing themselves in the Holy Land.

“Many have a brilliant intelligence. They master perfectly several languages. They regularly say their prayers morning and evening.

“The want of the Hebrews is as immense as the sea.
