Former Premier Leon Blum today sharply criticized the official Palestine radio for allegedly distorting a recent article he wrote on the Palestine situation.

Writing in the Socialist organ Le Populaire, Blum said that while the Palestine radio broadcast excerpts from the article in a manner designed to create the impression that he supported British actions in Palestine, actually he had charged the British with provoking terrorism and crushing the hopes of the Jews in Palestine and Zionists throughout the world.

Dr. Moshe Sneh, Jewish Agency member who is reported to be on the “wanted list of the Palestine Government announced here today that he would decide within a few days whether he will remain in Paris or return to Palestine.
