Danish Public Rallies in Support of Israel

The Danes swung into action today with rallies demanding aid to Israel, a fund-raising campaign headed by former Premier Vigo Kampman and denunciations of Egypt and the Soviet Union.

The fund campaign was reported to have collected a substantial sum but exact figures were not given. Leaders of all political parties addressed the rallies. A Social Democratic meeting heard a charge placing responsibility for the new Middle East war on Egypt and a demand that Russia stop sending arms to the Arab states.

Paul Moller, leader of the opposition, told a rally that there was no doubt as to where responsibility for the war should be placed. He called on the Danish Government to help Israel economically and in all other possible ways.
