Polish Jews Protest to Ambassador

Download PDF for this date

The British Ambassador today received a delegation composed of Jewish parliamentarians, representatives of all Zionist parties and the religious non-Zionist Agudath Israel, which presented a memorandum stating Polish Jewry’s attitude toward the forthcoming British White Paper on Palestine. He promised to transmit it to the British Government.

Stopping off her en route from Jerusalem to London, Treasurer Eleazer Kaplan of the Jewish Agency told a press conference last night that Palestine Jewry was determined, legally or illegally, to conduct an active and passive campaign for realization of the Jewish rights to immigration and colonization denied by the White Paper. Responsible Palestine Jewish leadership, he said, was opposed to the shedding of innocent blood to strengthen the upbuilding of Palestine. He said more new Jewish settlements would shortly be established in the Holy Land.
