Neumann, Goldmann Warn of Increasing Arab Propaganda Vs. Zionism

A change for the better is definitely noticeable in Israel’s attitude toward world Jewry outside of Israel, and toward the Zionist movement, Dr. Emanuel Neumann, chairman of the American section of the Jewish Agency, told a press conference here.

He said financial activities on behalf of Israel in the United States continued undiminished, but he warned that anti-Zionist and pro-Arab propaganda was making headway in the United States. He said that such propaganda aimed to separate so-called “acceptable Jewry” from Zionists, whose Americanism was alleged to be questionable by the propagandists. He added a warning that attacks on Zionism were simply a prelude to attacks on Israel.

The urgent need to resume the fight against the “concerted” propaganda attack on Zionism also was voiced by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, in speaking to the presidium of the World Zionist Actions Committee, which has been convened in connection with the session of the Jewish Agency executive in plenum. Dr. Goldmann warned that anti-Zionist propaganda was beginning to affect even Jews.
