I HAVE LEARNED with deep regret of the destruction
by a bomb of the building in Palestine in which were located the Palestine
Government and the British Military Headquarters, resulting in the killing
of approximately fifty men and women, soldiers and civilians. Every
responsible Jewish leader, I am sure, will join me in condemning the
wanton slaying of human beings.
At this time representatives of the United States Government are in
London conferring with representatives of the British Government as
to steps to be taken to implement the Report of the Palestine Committee
which recommended, among other things, the immigration of 100,000 Jews
Such acts of terrorism will not advance, but on the contrary might
well retard, the efforts that are being made, and will continue to be
made, to bring about a peaceful solution of this difficult problem.
