Revisionists Back Jewish Agency Request for Voice at U.n.; Ask Transfer of Mandate

May 1, 1947
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Jewish Agency executive was today urged to continue its efforts to obtain a voice at the United Nations special session on Palestine and to refuse to accept any offer of “observer” status, in a statement issued by the headquarters of the World Revisionist Organization.

The Revisionists criticized the Agency for not presenting the “ultimate solution” of the Palestine issue to the U.N. and thus “playing into the hands of Britain” by condening further delay. In view of the Arab demand for the termination of the Palestine Mandate, the Revisionists urged the Agency to ask for the establishment of Palestine as a Jewish state, the immediate evacuation of British troops and either termination of the Mandate or its transfer to a trustee other than Britain.
