When Communists Broke Up Betar Rallies

A clipping from the then-Palestine newspaper Hazit Ha'Am, quoting from New York's Morgen Journal, and dated October 7, 1932 relating information on Betar North America.

In addition to meetings, publications and activities, and preparing for a first group of Olim, it relates that an open-air rally was conducted in the Bronx's Claremont Parkway Park.

When speaker Israel Poznansky of the Revisionist Movement mentioned the differnece between Zionism and Eretz-Yisrael and the Soviet example of Biro-Bidjan, Communists began breaking up the meeting.  Police intervention was required.
