Jewish Immigrants from India Arrive in Israel

A party of 65 immigrants arrived today from India. Among them was one man who had immigrated here once before and then returned to India a few months ago.

This immigrant said that all Indian Jews who have returned to India from Israel now wish to come to Israel again. He added that most of the returnees had protested to the Indian Parliament against the “unjust” charges by an Indian Government spokesman that the Indian Jews had left Israel because of color discrimination.
