In the Case for the legionnaires by Daniel Schorr jewish soldiers cannot Settle on land they fought for during the world War some 4,000 american jews saw service in the jewish legion a part of the British army which helped win Palestine from the turks. Promises were made that those who wished to remain would be Given land and would be Able to Settle there for the rest of their lives. Soon after the War ended however the soldiers were unceremoniously placed on transport ships and sent Home. A few Hundred somehow managed to avoid repatriation and kept themselves alive by finding various Odd jobs. Today there is in the United states an organization known As the american Palestine jewish legion headed by or. Jacob m. Ravid of new York whose primary purpose is to find ways and Means of settling sex legionnaires in Palestine. There Are about 200 sex legionnaires or. Ravid told us who would leave their families tomorrow to live in Palestine a if they were Given the Chance. But because of Lack of funds inability to enter and no Way of getting land if they could enter Palestine they remain Here and wait. These legionnaires feel they have a claim against the British government. After All they say they gave up their jobs Here and risked their lives for the British government. They were Given to understand that the country would Welcome them after the War. And now they Are in the United states Miles from their adopted country. Expression will be Given to the legionnaires Hopes and demands at a convention to be held this december in new York or. Ravid said. Expressed before. The same desire and the same demands have been expressed frequently in the last seventeen years but with practically no result. Every zionist Congress and convention has Bee import Ned to Aid the jewish soldiers. Cablegram were sent to British officials. When prime minister Ramsay Macdonald was in new York recently Elias Ginsburg then head of the organization sent him a plea in behalf of the sex service men. The Only Aid they received came through the zionists. The jewish National fund through the offices of m. M. Uss Ishkin provided a parcel of land at Wadi Chav Areth. A Unm Ber of legionnaires who were already in Palestine were settled on the land. They proceeded hampered As they were by Lack of funds to build Homes industries and schools for themselves and their families. The Only funds the legionnaires rec led came through the zionist organization. Albert Zund Elowitz died leaving $40,000 to be used for zionist purposes. The z. O. A., the executor of the bequest turned Over the Money to the legion. The idea of a jewish legion began in 1914 when a group of palestinian jews anxious to serve great Britain organized the Zion mule transport corps which saw service at the Dardanelles. The corps was engaged in work highly important to the British army and was frequently cited for its bravery and efficiency. The second jewish legion the legion that became famous came into being after the Balfour declaration was issued. More than 4,000 american jews stirred by the British Promise to Aid in the erection of a jewish Homeland resolved to make the Homeland a reality by wresting the country from the turks. They enlisted to serve in the British army at the British Canadian recruiting Mission in new York City. In due course they were transported to Palestine and organized into four battalions of the Royal Fusiliers. These four battalions were Given the menorah As their Emblem and they became the famous jewish legion. Made Good record. Unaccustomed to the climate suffering from Scarcity of water the jewish legion made a notable record for itself. British military re cords have Many tales to Tell of bravery in this Volunteer Force. Connected with the legion were such leaders As colonel Henry Patterson Captain Joseph Trump Eldor and Vladimir Zabotinsky. During the time they were fighting it had been understood the legionnaires would be Able to remain in Palestine As permanent settlers. After the armistice a poll was taken Ani 1,000 men signified intention of remaining in the coutry. In 1919, an army ordinance was issued to the effect that those who wished to remain in Palestine would be Given government land. That Promise was never kept. The soldiers were sent Home. Even the request that the legion be demobilized in Palestine was not granted. The men were sent Home there to be demobilized. There were a scattered few Hundred who remained in the country through devious Means. They lived a hard life keeping body and soul together by working at various trades. It was a Day when colonization of land was a by word. And the soldiers had no land to colonize. Finally the jewish National fund granted them the Small Colony. Some thirty families settled Here and tried to build an agricultural Colony. They had practically no funds. They were constantly harried by the bedouins. There were a number of skirmishes. In 1933, Joseph Ben gemini was killed in an attack. Today his son is one of the settlers Young vigorous and enthusiastic. With the $40,000 Zund Elowitz bequest the colonists first began to make the Colony flourish. They built pipe lines planted oranges and erected Homes and a school. But there was no Money left for the legionnaires in the United states. To aggravate the situation of the legionnaires Here most of them have by now passed the age limit for labor certificates. Yet the legionnaires want to go to Palestine. They have waited patiently for seventeen years and their ardor has not dampened. They Hope that eventually great Britain will take cognizance of a Promise it made when it needed Aid. The legionnaires hold frequent meetings in new York and other cities and recall their Battles on Palestine soil. After seventeen years of agitation to be transferred to Palestine to be repatriated As they Call it doubts arise As to whether they will Ever have their Hopes fulfilled. They know that the zionist organization for All its willingness can do Little. There Are German refugees and polish jews whose need is direr than theirs. But they still look to Britain. They Point to maps showing Large tracts of unsettled land and wonder when the mandatory Power will keep her Promise. Their Hopes Are summed up in the cablegram the legion sent to the Lucerne world zionist Congress.
