Argentine Jews Protest Gomulka’s Attack on Jews in Poland

A special convention of Polish Jews living in Argentina adopted a resolution today protesting against an attack on Jews in Poland for having welcomed Israel’s victory over the Arabs last month.

The attack had been made by Wladyslaw Gomulka, Communist Party chief in Poland, who denounced these Jews as “fifth columnists.”

The convention was addressed by Ambassador Moshe Alon of Israel and Chief Rabbi David Kahane. Abraham Mitelberg, Buenos Aires publisher, presided at the meeting.
