Funny Thing . . . on Way to Mythical Mt.



A funny (sic!) thing hapPened, last Sunday On the way to a
mythical American Mt. Zion.
At the meeting of the national board of the American Zionist
Federation, a declaration was issued threatening members of the
Zionist Organization of America with disfranchisement unless they
returned to AZF ranks.
That's a new gimmick erupting from anger - . .
Disfranchisement ?
Any wonder that some Jewish leaderships fail to gain con-
stituencies' respect ?.
