Argentine Jewry Acclaims U.S. Campaign Against Ku Klux Klan

The DAIA, the central representative organization of Argentine Jewry, hailed the Johnson Administration this weekend for its “war” on the Ku Klux Klan in defense of civil rights in the United States.

In a message to U. S. Ambassador Edwin Martin, the DAIA said that the activities of the KKK have been felt even in Argentina in the form of propaganda and incitement to violence, and lauded the Johnson decision as a move in support of freedom and dignity everywhere.
