Argentine Revisionist Parley Says Irgunists Suffer Discrimination in Israel Army

Isaac Bokser was reelected president of the Revisionist Organization at the group’s annual convention, attended by delegates from all parts of Argentina, as well as from Chile and Uruguary.

The parley criticized what it termed “discrimination” practiced against veterans of the Irgun Zvai Leumi now serving in the Israel Army and also appealed for an allocation to the Revisionists by the United Israel Drive. The delegates said that unless this were done, the Revisionist Party would launch its own campaign at a later date.

Joseph Sprinzak, Speaker of the Israel parliament, declared last night at a reception tendered in his honor that Jewish communities throughout the world must extend financial aid to Israel for at least another five years. He expressed gratification over the recent Zionist Actions Committee decision to develop closer cooperation between the Jewish Agency and the Israel Government.
