Leibel Weissfish, leader of the ultra-Orthodox Neturei Karta sect of Jerusalem, who is in the United States now, denied today that he had ever maintained contact with the Arab delegations at the United Nations.

“I never met Dr. Fadil Jamali or any other member of the Iraqi delegation at the United Nations. I have no knowledge at all of material which was allegedly submitted in the name of the Neturei Karta to the Iraqi delegation, ” he said.
