“Unhindered Jewish Aliya!
Jewish-Arab Cooperation! Socialist Sovereignty!”
Tel Aviv:Defus ha-Arets, 1939

This election poster for the 21st Congress, held on the eve of World War II, advertises the Po‘alei Ziyon and the Marxist Circles (list yod-dalet). Together with the entire political spectrum of Zionism, it expresses opposition to the MacDonald White Paper of May, 1939, which severely restricted Jewish aliya and land transfer. This document was widely considered to represent Britain’s final betrayal of the principles laid out in the Balfour Declaration.
