World Conference of Nzo Warns Britain Not to Drive Jews to Extreme Measures

Download PDF for this date

Continued refusal by the Labor Government to implement its pre-election promises regarding Palestine will drive the Jews in that country to extreme measures, such as non-cooperation, non-payment of taxes, squatting on land now barred to Jews and other active and passive means of resistance, a provisional world conference of the New Zionist organization warned today, in a resolution adepted here.

The resolution also called for the United Nations to accord membership to the Jewish people and recognize a suitably constituted Jewish national authority. In this connection, it urged the provisional executive of the NZO, elected last night, to create a “Provisional Jewish Government” and negotiate for termination of the mandate, and preclamation of the entire mandated territory as a Jewish state. Removal of the leadership of the Jewish Agency was recommended,

NZO branches throughout the world were requested to hold conferences, no later than Dec. 1, to consider the question of their participation in the next World Zionist Congress. Delegates attending the present conference include Revisionist leaders from the United States, Palestine, Britain, South Africa, South America and several European countries.
