Warburg Deplores Germany Lacks Britain’s Political Sense

October 25, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Professor Otto Warburg, former President of the Zionist Actions Committee in a statement to the Boersenzeitung retorts to the recent assertion in the same paper by the political leader Herr Koehrer, a former Socialist, that Zionism serves British interests. Under the circumstances Herr Koehrer suggested that the German Zionists should take no part in the public life of Germany but emigrate to Palestine.

Professor Warburg declares that Zionists are not English agents, being above politics. England, however, by recognizing the moral and material implications of the Zionist movement showed the fine political sense it posses, which Germany unfortunately lacks, Professor Warburg concludes.
