April 12, 1944
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The British Government will shortly publish “a further paper favoring the creation of a Jewish National State, however small” it is predicted today in an article in the London Daily Mail.

The article, written by A. Forbes, a Mail political columnist, warns that “uncompromising Zionism may increase anti-Semitism in Britain and in America.” The writer advocates the “preservation of part of Palestine, including Jerusalem, as a kind of a Vatican City for the Jews.”
