House Gets Resolution to Investigate Propaganda Activities of Arab Office in U.S.

Congressman Emanuel Cellen Democrat of New York, today introduced in the House of Representatives a resolution to investigate charges made recently by the Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi League concerning organized propaganda activities of the Arab League and its Washington agency the Arab Office, as well as of the Institute for Arab-American Affairs and other unofficial agencies operating in concert.

The Celler resolution would authorize the House Judiciary Committee, or a special sub-committee, to investigate organized propaganda activities of these agencies, especially in connection with American groups which are engaged in stirring up religious bias and bigotry for the purposes of influencing adversely the attitude of the Administration concerning the recommendation of the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine, that 100,000 Jews be admitted into Palestine.
