B’nai B’rith Hits Arab States’ Discrimination Against U.S. Jews

A protest against the discrimination practiced by Arab countries in refusing to admit American soldiers and citizens of the Jewish faith was unanimously voted here by the administrative committee of the B’nai B’rith.

A resolution called upon President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles to demand from these states a prompt end to such “intolerable discrimination.” The resolution noted that the Air Force manual and recent statements by Secretary for Air Harold E. Talbott admitted that the Air Force had accepted the ban imposed by Jordan and Saudi Arabia against American personnel of the Jewish faith.
