Israel’s Vote at U. N. in Favor of Arab Resolution Provokes Criticism

Israel’s vote at the General Assembly last week in favor of the Arab nations’ resolution calling on United Nations Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold to take the lead in working out a rapprochement among them is being criticized here by all opposition parties. Reportedly, some coalition members share the criticisms.

In a joint meeting in Tel Aviv yesterday of all the opposition parties, Ambassador Abba Eban’s vote was scored. At a joint meeting tomorrow, leaders of the opposition groups will decide whether to demand recall of the recessed Parliament for a debate on the vote. The opposition also frowned on the fact that Mrs. Golda Meir, Foreign Minister, was not at the United Nations heading Israd’s delegation to the special Assembly.
