Argentine Party Censures Parliamentary Delegation Hostile to Israel

The Democratic Progressive Party this weekend issued a statement censuring the Argentine parliamentary delegation that recently made anti-Israel statements while visiting Jordan; The executive board of the party said: “Arab countries who declared themselves in a state of war with a country with which Argentina maintains friendly relations should not be endorsed by Argentine members of Parliament.”

The statement charged that Eduardo Gamond, leader of the delegation touring the Arab countries, a member of the radical del Pueblo majority, “forgets that, in the Middle East, it is not Israel who ignores United Nations resolutions but the Egyptian dictator. “
