30 Moroccan Jews in High Government Positions Reported to Have Left Country

Download PDF for this date

About 30 Moroccan Jews who had held high governmental positions prior to the outbreak of the Israeli-Arab war last June have left Morocco, some of them settling in France while others have gone to Israel, it was learned here today. They left due to the repercussions of the war which had worsened their relations with Moslems in Morocco.

The extremist nationalist press in Morocco has intensified its campaign against Jews during the last weeks, inciting the local Moslem population and criticizing the Government for permitting Jews to hold positions in Government offices.
