Download PDF for this date

The DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jewry, and the pro-Peronist Organization Israelita Argentina today wired President Juan Peron to express their thanks for Argentina’s recognition of Israel.

The DAIA’s message stated that Argentina’s action “presages fruitful collaboration with the new state.” The O.I.A. called the move a “splendid gesture” and bailed Peron as a “champion of social justice.”
