Algerian Students Decide to Support Israel; Oppose Arab League

Download PDF for this date

Solidarity with the State of Israel was expressed here in a resolution adopted at a meeting of Algerian Socialist students. The students also called for peace in the Middle East, even if it must come through intervention of the Big Three.

In another resolution, the Algerian students expressed opposition to the “imperialism of the Arab League.” The League, they charged, had intervened in the Algerian-French dispute and had “aroused the racial feelings of the population in what ought to have been a fight for democratic forces against the feudalism of the (French) settlers.”
