English Assimilation in Palestine Introduced by Officials, Charges Ii. Ii. Ussischkin


That the English assimilation, which is being introduced in Palestine, is the fault of the Brandeis group, the Hadassah and the Zionist officials of Western Europe, was the charge made today by M.M Ussischkin, Director of the Jewish National Fund in Palestine, at a meeting of the Mizrachi, held here yesterday.

In developing his complaint, Mr. Ussishkin stated that Sir Herbert Samuel told him: “How do you expect a the Palestine officials to speak Hebrew at a time when the Zionist officials are not Hebrewized.”
