The Struggle for the Establishment of the State of Israel


August 22-24
The Actions Committee meets in Jerusalem. Among it's important decisions: aliyah to Israel and the absorption of new immigrants are not just an Israeli undertaking but the responsibility of the entire Jewish people who should, therefore, assume the cost; the Jewish Agency shall continue to operate even after the establishment of the State in order to promote aliyah, handle absorption and continue to support Youth Aliyah and settlement. A confrontation is developing between the Israeli and American members of the Zionist Executive. The Americans demand that WZO headquarters be moved to New York now that the State has been established. Ben-Gurion and the Israeli leadership reject this demand. The government ministers resign from their jobs in the Jewish Agency Executive. Levi Eshkol begins to operate as the treasurer of the Jewish Agency and head of the Department of Agricultural Settlement.
