Canadian Zionist Council Warns Against Supporting “maple Leaf Legion for Palestine”

Download PDF for this date

The Canadian League for a Free Palestine was sharply criticized today by the United Zionist Council of Canada, meeting here, for announcing the formation of a “Maple Leaf Legion for Palestine.”

“We are most anxious that the Canadian public be made aware that the Maple Leaf Legion has not been authorized and does not have the support of any representative Zionist body,” the resolution said. “We, therefore, find it necessary to repeat previous warnings to Canadian Zionists against the desirability of lending any support to dissident and divisive movements which can only lead to confusion.”
