Anti-Israel propaganda activities are mounting in the United States, according to a new study released here by the American Zionist Committee for Public Affairs.

A committee memorandum predicted “in the coming months there will be propaganda pressures for an Arab-Israel ‘solution’–concessions by Israel to appease Arab appetites.”

The memorandum described Israel as a special target of the Arabs in their anti-Western drive. It called for a U.S. policy strengthening militarily and economically “the free world family in the Near East.” Members of this family were listed as including Jordan and Lebanon as well as Israel, Turkey, Iran, Sudan, Ethiopia and Tunisia. “Military aid should be given where their commitment to democracy and to peace is beyond challenge,” said the memorandum.

The memorandum called for firmer commitments on existing frontiers, regional development, resistance of appeasement tendencies, preservation of oil resources from UAR-domination. and facilitation of Arab-Israel peace through denial of one-way concessions at Israeli expense.
