Jewish Democratic Committee Organ in Rumania Continues Campaign Against Zionism

Download PDF for this date

Continuing its anti-Zionist campaign, ” Unirea,” official organ of the Jewish Democratic Committee of Rumania, published an appeal to all branches of the Committee to emulate the example of Committee units in Lugoj and Mediash, in Transylvania, which recently “unmasked” several Zionists at public gatherings.

The paper, in a large, front-page editorial, declared that as the “hate of the former propagandists of the Zionist diversion against the regime of popular democracy becomes more stubborn, the more Jews join the fight of the Rumanian workers for a new social order.” The paper also charged that the Zionists “start rumors, making themselves the spokesman of the imperialist agencies which circulate poisonous slander against the Soviet Union and her allies.”
