B’nai B’rith President Testieles at Senate Hearing; Urges Genocide Pact Ratification

Frank Goldman, president of the B’nai B’rith, testifying before a subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today urged U.S. ratification of the United Nations Genocide Convention.

Failure on the part of the United States to ratify the genocide convention might lead to a rebirth of isolationism, he said. The failure would also be considered by the rest of the world as a retreat from traditional American principles, he declared.
