Due to increased inquiries of Jews wanting to move the Palestine the Zionist leadership already in Palestine began to hold meetings to figure out how to allow Jews in Germany passage out. Problems arose with laws in Germany not allowing money to leave the country unless approved by the German government. This caused problems in two ways, first the people that could pay to move to Palestine were not allowed to, and second many did not want to leave all their possessions behind to start a new life in Palestine. Zionist interests wanted middle class Jews that could pay money to come to Palestine instead of poor Jews.

Zionist Quote: “There is a danger that German Jews with money will go to other countries and those lacking means will come here [Palestine]. We must work on this matter”

Arlosoroff in an attempt to finalize the movement of German Jews two Palestine goes behind the back of the London lead Zionist movement to approve land deals with the Arab sheikhs. Other secret meetings with Zionists including Weizmann, Cunliffe-Lister, Wauchope, and Rutenberg to discuss the creation of a fund / holding company to buy land in Palestine.

In between secret meetings Arlosoroff would try to update the London Zionists who would get upset that London was not in control and getting to approve all deals and decisions being made by Arlosoroff. Neumann and Senator eventually resigned in protest of Arlosoroff’s secret meetings that they were not apart of.

Some how Arlosoroff learned of the encoded telegram sent by Neumann to London telling them to stop support of Arlosoroff, and in response Arlosoroff sent a second telegram posing as Neumann stating that the first message was sent without his permission and to disregard.

After another fight between Arlosoroff and Senator - Cohen proposes they use his preexisting orange orchard land business as the holding company. German representative Wolff agrees to this arrangement if Cohen agreed to only buy certain products from Germany rather than other cheaper sources.
