Mussolini Organ Advises Nazis to Let Jews Export at Least Part of Capital

Premier Mussolini’s newspaper, Il Popolo D’Italia, in an editorial entitled “Wisdom,” today urges the German government to permit German Jews to “export at least part of their capital to Palestine.”

The paper, in reviewing the Eighteenth World Zionist Congress recently concluded at Prague, hails as particularly wise the decision of the congress to abstain from the economic anti-Nazi boycott. Such action, it points out, will undoubtedly facilitate the emigration of Jews from the Reich.

“For the Jewish problem only one solution exists and that is a Jewish state in Palestine,” the paper states. “The Zionist congress has clearly proclaimed that Jewry is not a religion but a nation and an exhaustive, final solution of this question is becoming most pressing.”
