Moslem Brotherhood Protests to Bonn Parliament Against Israel Pact

Download PDF for this date

The Moslem Brotherhood has protested to the West German Government against the German-Israel reparations agreement and urged Parliament not to ratify it.

The Brotherhood wrote to Hermann Ehlers, president of the Bundestag, accusing the Bonn Government of “a hostile attitude” toward the Arab world. The letter appealed to Parliament not to ratify the agreement and said there was no justification for the pact as Israel was not the proper representative of world Jewry.
