Canadian Revisionists Hold First Convention

Download PDF for this date

After a night and a day session the first convention of the Canadian Zionist Revisionists, held here adopted a number of resolutions protesting against Dr. Magnes for punishing a certain number of revisionist students; protesting against the National Fund for leasing certain lands to the Arabs; protesting against the Palestine Office in Poland for so-called unfair distribution of certificates and protesting against the Zionist Executive for not reorganizing the Palestine offices in accordance with resolutions of the last congress.

Other resolutions call upon Jewry to join the ranks of the Revisionists into whose hands the destiny of Zionism has been entrusted and state that the only way to bolster the Zionist movement in America is to bring to this continent a Revisionist delegation headed by Vladimir Jabotinsky.

Executive members of the National Council of the American Revisionists, brought greetings from that body and spoke about the necessity to remove the present Zionist leaders by all possible means.

Officers elected for the coming year were M. Barsal, president; H. Abella, vice-president and I. Bratt, general secretary.

Addresses on “The Tel-Hai Fund,” “Is a Jewish State in Palestine Possible Under the Present System” and the “Zionist Outlook,” were delivered by I. Baratz, A. Zabeloff, and I. Ha-Carmeli of New York.
