Hashomer Hatzair Members Released by Police in Argentina; Warned Not to Insult Beigin

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Ten members of the Hashomer Hatzair who were arrested here last week for distributing leaflets calling the Irgunists “fascist murderers” were released today.

Police authorities stated that they have warned members of the Hashomer Hatzair who had been conducting a propaganda campaign against Menahem Beigin, former Irgun leader, since his arrival in Argentina, that they would not tolerate encitement to violence against members of a parliament of a country which maintains friendly relations with Argentina.

“El Estado Judio,” organ of the General Zionists, appeared today with an article protesting the Hashomer Hatzair action. The article states that “internal Jewish conflicts need not be aired on the streets of Buenos Aires”. Emphasizing that the General Zionists do not agree with the political line and methods of the Herut Party in Israel, of which Beigin is a leader, the article says that the distribution of insulting anti-Beigin leaflets by the Hashomer Hatzair was “a cruel injustice”.

More than 1,000 persons attended a reception given here for Mr. Beigin by the Macabbi, the largest Jewish sports club here. Principal speaker at the reception was Dr. Moises Goldman, president of the Macabbi organization.
