Palestine Government Warned of Conspiracy Against Jews; Additional Protection Sought

The Argentine Governments was warned today that Nazi elements here are planning a conspiracy against the Jews of this country similar to the Reichstag fire.

The warning was contained in a note submitted to the Minister of Interior by (##)lio Troise, president of the Committee to Fight Anti-Semitism. The Minister was urged to take all measures possible for the suppression of anti-Jewish outbreaks and for the protection of the Jewish sections of the city.

“Nazi elements,” the note said, “are preparing themselves for a putsch in a manner similar to the Reichstag fire in Germany. The conspirators are planning to make Jews appear to be aggressors against the Catholic Church and the followers of Gen. Peron.” All this will be done to furnish a pretext for an invasion of the Jewish section by groups terming themselves nationalists, the memorandum pointed out.

It was established here today that a large percentage of the anti-Semites preaching violence are members of the “Alianza Liberadora Nacionalista,” which is a front for a group declared illegal by the Supreme Court.
