Jewish State Party, Revisionists Establish Joint Committees

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish State Party, a right-wing faction of the World Zionist Organization, and the independent New Zionist Organization announced today their decision to establish political contact committees in London and Tel Aviv.

These committees, said an announcement issued after representatives of the two organizations had conferred here, will have the principal purpose of carrying out common actions, particularly in opposing the proposed partition of Palestine, but the cooperation will not involve sacrifice of independence or character of either organization.

At the same time, the World Executive Committee of the Jewish State Party issued a manifesto stating that while remaining in the World Zionist Organization, it would not cooperate with the Zionist Executive. The manifesto demanded revocation of the sentence suspending Meir Grossman, Jewish State Party leader, from Zionist positions for two years for publication of purported secret documents relating to partition. The Party proposed establishment of a special commission to examine the accusations against Mr. Grossman and demanded the summoning before an independent court of Dr. Chaim Weizmann and David Ben Gurion.
