LONDON (Feb. 5)
A mass meeting sponsored by the Zionist Federation of Britain expressed regret last night that the UN General Assembly resolutions had failed to call on Egypt to desist from belligerent acts against Israel and to abandon its blockade of Israel shipping.
The meeting expressed support of Israel’s determination not to give up its positions in the Akaba area without first securing effective guarantees against renewed belligerency and blockade. “Peace in the Middle East can only be achieved. ” a resolution adopted by acclamation said, “by the creation of direct contacts leading to a new relationship between Israel and the Arab states based on the principles of the United Nations Charter and peaceful co-existence. “
