Israel Communist Delegate at Budapest Youth Parley Attacks “anglo-u.s. Imperialism”

David Khennin, leader of the Israel Communist delegation attending the World Federation of Democratic Youth Congress here, last night delivered an address to the parley declaring that “British-American imperialism is the common foe of both the Jews and Arabs as well as of the working peoples.” No other Israel delegate addressed the congress due to lack of time, although an address by a Mapai delegate was scheduled.

However, a copy of the Mapai delegate’s address was later distributed in mimeographed form to all delegates attending the congress. The undelivered speech described the achievements and aspirations, both social and economic, of Israel’s youth but at the same time decried the lack of unity among them.
