Dispatch Confirms Anti-semitic Arab Agent Has Left Argentina

Download PDF for this date

Norman Ingrey, special correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor in Argentina, in a dispatch published here today, confirmed earlier reports that Hussein Triki, who served as agent for the Arab League in Argentina until last month, had left the country. The dispatch stated, however, that there is general speculation over whether Triki might return in the near future.

In the last few months, Triki had been traveling around Argentina, delivering lectures which included sharp attacks on Judaism and trying to peddle the idea that the Jews were planning a “Zionist America.” His expulsion from the country had been requested on a number of occasions by delegations representing the Argentina Jewish community.
