Communists Demonstrate in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Against U.S. Intervention in Korea

Communist demonstrations against the Israel Government’s stand on Korea were held last night in Jorusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa.

In this city some 50 persons marched through the streets carrying Hebrew and English banners reading: “Hands Off Korea,” “We Want Peace” and “End American Aggression.” The demonstrators attracted little attention.

In Tel Aviv several hundred Communists carried banners reading: “Israel for the Israelis, Korea for the Koreans.” They held a meeting near the American consulate which was addressed by a speaker who condemned American intervention in Korea.

The left-wing Socialist Mapam Party has called 50 mass meetings in various parts of Israel to protest against the Israel Government’s decision to support the U.N. Security Council resolution on Korea. The main slogan of the rallies are; “Heands Off Korea.”

The United States Embassy here announced that all American Air Force reserve polots must report to the air attache at the embassy within 72 hours.
