Jew-baiter Sues B’nai B’rith over ‘anti-semite’ Label

George L. Rockwell, a former Naval commander who publishes anti-Jewish propaganda in the basement of his home here has filed a $50,000 libel suit against the Arlington B’nai B’rith Lodge.

He claimed in the suit that he was damaged by statements which the lodge had caused to be published and which, he said, characterized him as an “anti-Semite.” Actually, said Mr. Rockwell in the suit, Semites are “mostly Arabs for whom the plaintiff has great sympathy as victims of Jewish aggression.”
