B’nai B’rith President Criticizes U.S. Stand on Israel at U.N.

Download PDF for this date

United States policy was criticized tonight by Label A. Katz, president of B’nai B’rith, for initiating “aberrant justice” in the Israel-Syria dispute. He charged that the “misproportioned resolution” voted last week by the United Nations Security Council “censures Israel for defending itself from hostile acts continuing Arab provocations on Israel’s borders.”

Mr. Katz, in a speech here marking the centennial of B’nai B’rith in Wisconsin, said the resolution invoked a double standard, and its effect “can weaken United Nations effectiveness in achieving a peaceful Arab-Israel settlement.”
