Jordan Charges Israel with Discrimination in Arab Education

Jordan today opened the threatened Arab League offensive in the United Nations on Israel’s alleged “discrimination” against Arabs living in Israel. Addressing the General Assembly’s Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee, Dr. Muhammad H. El-Farra, Jordan’s representative, complained that “Arab students in Israel are not given the opportunity to know their own culture or history.”

Mrs. Tamar Eshel, Israeli representative, told the committee that Israel “does not accept these allegations.” She added that, in due time, she will reply fully to the Jordan attack.
