U.N. Urged to Take Ration Cards from Arabs Ready to Fight Israel

Download PDF for this date

The United Nations must strike from its aid program all Arab “refugees” assembling for training in the new “Palestine Liberation army” for war against Israel, national commander Ralph Plofsky, of the Jewish War Veterans of the U. S. A., said today.

Mr. Plofsky pointed out that the United States was paying a major share of UN expenses, and should insist that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency funds be restricted only to peaceful Arabs. He said UN ration cards should be taken from any Arab enlisting in an anti-Israel military force like that envisaged by the recent Arab summit conference at Alexandria.
