The compromise formula for the Zionist movement status in Israel was sharply attacked today by Rabbi Irving Miller, vice-president of the Z.O.A. and candidate for presidency, who said it contrasts sharply with the resolution adopted by the Zionist Congress.

Referring to reports that Israel Government leaders will insist on the enlargement of the Jewish Agency by inclusion of non-Zionists before according any status in Israel to the Agency, Rabbi Miller said: “Such procedure was never authorized by the Congress and might represent even a more serious attack upon the integrity and existence of a vital world Zionist organization.”
