Download PDF for this date

The Inter-University Jewish Federation today picketed the Soviet Embassy, the Russian Tourist Office and the Communist Party paper, Morning Star, in protest against the Soviet anti-Israel policy at the United Nations. The pickets carried banners expressing “deep apprehension” of both Jewish and non-Jewish students throughout Great Britain concerning the rearming by the Russians of the Arab countries.
