Proskauer The following Is the text of a statement released by Jos'ph M. Proskauer, former Justice of the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court and president of the American Jewish Committee: "The approval by the United Nations Assem'bly of the Partition Plan for Palestine is a vindication of the wisdom, skill and energy of the American Delegation and of our State Department. "It has not been sufficiently emphasized that the failure to approve partition would have created a chaotic situation in Palestine and would have been cited by opponents of the United Nations as an indication of weakness and ineffectiveness on the part of the organization. "It is a salutory thing for world peace that the Assembly has demon- strated its ability to handle with effectiveness a critical situation. For this, the thanks of all friends of peace are due to President Trum;,n. Secretary Marshall, Under-Secretary Lovett, Senator Austin, Ambassa- dor Johnson, General Hilldring and other assistants. "The implementation of the plan will bring about the much needed immigration into Palestine and will come as a blessing to the suffering remnant of Nazi brutality in Europe. "In the Statement of Views of the American Jewish Committee. issued on January 31, 1943, it was stated: 'Since we hold that in tile United States as in all other countries, Jews. like all others of their citizens, are nationals of those nations and of no other, there can b no political identification of Jews outside of Palestine with whatever government may there be instituted.' That principle is axiomatic. "It remains for us as Americans to give counsel and support for the establishment in Palestine of a truly democratic government that will be a place of human freedom, of liberty and of dew>tion to the highest ideals of humanity."
