Polish Organ Backs Emigration Parley

Download PDF for this date

Polska Zbronja, army organ which mirrors the views of General Edward Rydz-Smigly, virtual dictator of Poland, in an editorial yesterday discussed a plan attributed to Vladimir Jabotinsky, president of the New Zionist Organization, for emigration of a half million East European Jews to Palestine.

The paper declared Palestine immigration restriction and economic considerations militated against the plan.

It applauded, however, the idea of an international conference of governments interested in mass emigration of Jews to Palestine declaring such a conference would arouse the sympathies not only of Poles but of world Jewry as well.
