In this year of the Christian era,
1946, there exists a small nation without gold, oil,
empire, or power. They are the survivors of Adolf
Hitler's ruthless barbaric onslaught against the Hebrew
people. Their only hope is to re-establish themselves in
peace and freedom in their ancient homeland, Palestine.
The powerful British Empire seeks
Palestine as a base for Colonial military operation. To
achieve this, she has defied both international law and
human decency. Today she is ready to strangle the last
hope of the Hebrew people. Her mighty navy, army and RAF
have been mobilised to keep the Hebrews from returning
home to Palestine.
Against this array of British might,
the Hebrews have but one weapon on their side--justice.
The "weeping" and rioting" Hebrews
who fight British troops with their fists in Haifa have
no better weapons to withstand the British than they had
in the Warsaw Ghetto, in the concentration camp or in
the forests of Lithuania and Latvia. And they have no
choice but to fight with their naked hands or be
deported from their legal home to the Island of Cyprus,
where the British Government is setting up their Dauchau
like concentration camps. Only in Cypress its jailors
will speak the King's English.
Britain has declared war on freedom.
Free men and women all over the world
will not let this declaration pass unopposed.
As before, the British will
ultimately lose this war.
It is a repetition of America's fight
in 1776 and ireland's. This issue will not be decided in
a contest between the decimated Hebrew nation and the
mighty British empire, but between the public opinion of
the world, of civilized and freedom loving men and the
Therefore, we, free Americans of all
creeds and all races, will redouble our unremitting
support to the Hebrew people.
We will oppose any appeasement of
Britain and the betrayal of the Hebrew people from any
quarter for any political leader. Partition plans are
dangerous evasions--they are not based on justice and
will be washed away in blood.
We, therefore, pledge our moral and
material aid toward that solution so that:
1. The REPATRIATION of the Hebrews
should go on until the last Hebrew in Europe who wishes
to go to Palestine gets there.
2. The heroic resistance of the
Hebrews in Palestine will have reached a victorious end.
3. The world recognizes the right of
the Hebrews to a place among the peoples of the world
and to a country of their own on this earth.
LET'S TAKE ACTION! The American
league for a Free Palestine's three-point point positive
programme appears above.
We call upon all of you, the free
people of America, to rally with us behind this just,
historic fight for freedom. Britain has declared war on
freedom. What is your answer?
This is no time to relax. This is no
time for silence. Contribute and get your friends to
contribute. Don't abandon the survivors in Europe and
the hroic hebrew efforts in palestine. Send your checks
