Soviet Discriminations Against Jews Condemned in U.S. Congress

Rep. Cornelius E. Gallagher, New Jersey Democrat, a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, today told the House that “present-day Soviet anti-Semitism is a stern warning to the believer of all faiths as to what they might expect from Communist dictatorship.”

In a statement on the House floor, he said that Soviet anti-Semitic actions “permit no other interpretations.” He said “the world–and especially the new nations of Asia and Africa–will pass stern judgment on Soviet racism as the sordid facts are brought to light.”
