See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Wholehearted support of the Allies was voiced today in a resolution adopted by a conference of the Palestine Jewish Labor Party.

The resolution extended special encouragement to the British Labor Party for assuming responsibilities in defense of the Empire and hailed the French workers and fighters.

In other resolutions the conference called upon American Jews to exert the utmost efforts to secure Jewish rights at the ultimate peace conference and appealing to the British Government to mobilize tens of thousands of Jewish youths, “who are ready to fight the external and internal enemies of Palestine.”
