Jewish Leader in England Evaluates Situation of Algerian Jewry

The Jews of Algeria are being placed in an intolerable situation as a result of opposing stands toward them by the FLN, the Algerian rebel organization, R.N. Carvalho, president of the Anglo-Jewish Association, declared at a meeting of the Association’s Council.

He said the FLN on the one hand was telling the Jews that they were Algerians, while at the same time, Algerian Jews were being attacked by the FLN in the name of Algerian patriotism and Arab solidarity. He expressed the hope that FLN leaders would “realize the effect on world opinion of this sort of thing and restrain their supporters from committing similar outrages in the future.”
