Boston Jewish Council Condemns Anti-jewish Terror in Rumania

A resolution strongly condemning the Communist government of Rumania for its latest “reign of terror” against Jews and calling “upon the free world to seek their release from the grip of totalitarian brutality” was sent this week by the Jewish Community Council of Metropolitan Boston to the two Massachusetts Senators and to the nation’s top diplomatic representatives. The resolution reads:

“Recent revelations regarding the reign of terror conducted by the Communist government of Rumania against Jews have shocked many in the free world. We record our deep sorrow and indignation over this newest manifestation of anti-Jewish persecution behind the Iron Curtain. Dispatches indicate that hundreds of Rumanian Zionists and Jewish leaders have been arrested and flung into jail without trial solely because they have assisted their brethren to emigrate to Israel. These martyrs in the universal struggle against oppression are being punished for their courageous efforts to free fellow Jews from Rumanian enslavement. We call upon the free world to seek their release from the grip of totalitarian brutality.”
