Two settlements have already been established on the site and others all soon be founded.

Addressing the ceremony, Dr. Goldstein proposed a “five-year plan” for the wish people during which 1,000,000 dunams of land would be purchased here and 1,000,000 immigrants resettled. Discussing events of the past week, he said that if the Mandatory thinks by sending back ships it will deter future attempts by Jews enter their national home, it is miscalculating the driving force of the Jewish all to live.”

He said that the U.P.A. expects to transmit $50,000,000 to Palestine this year ##d also will send men “to participate in the restoration of the Jewish state.”
