Jews in Tripolitania Anticipate Difficulties; Feel Allies Neglect Minority Guarantees

Download PDF for this date

Anticipation of new difficulties resulting from the failure of the U.N. to give proper consideration to minority rights guarantees in Libya when that former Italian colony changes status, has given new impetus to the mass exodus to Israel of Jewish communities in North Africa, Dr. Maurice L. Perlzweig, special representative in international affairs of the World Jewish Congress, told a press conference today upon his return from Tripolitania.

“The Jews, and this applies also to other minorities, are completely without confidence in the proposed arrangement for the future of these territories which have emerged from the discussions among several of the great powers,” he reported.
