May 25, 1936
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Zionism’s “death rattle” has already begun, the Yiddish daily, Emess, declares today in an editorial on the Palestine disorders.

Under the caption, “Palestine in Flames,” the editorial states that the position in that country is now more complicated than ever before, since Zionism has become the target of the national Arab fight in the Near East.

Contending that Palestine is now a war front and a battle zone, the editorial says:

“Zionism is building upon a volcano. The death rattle of Zionism has already begun.”
