United Zionist Council of Canada Supports Unscop Recommendations

Download PDF for this date

The United Zionist Council of Canada today issued a statement warmly praising the majority report of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine. The memorandum paid tribute to the role of the Canadian delegates, Justice I.C. Rand and Alternate Leon Mayrand, in formulating the UNSCOP report.

Urging that the Canadian Government support the UNSCOP recommendations at the General Assembly, the statement criticized the proposal awarding Western Galilee to the Arabs and pointed out that, in the interests of consolidation and the maintenance of order and friendly relations, the area should be given to the Jews.
