Argentine Jews Deplore Anti-israel, Anti-jewish Policies of Soviet Government

The central representative organization of Argentine Jewry, the DAIA, concluded its annual conference with adoption of a declaration condemning the Soviet Union for its anti-Israel policies and deploring its denial of rights to Its Jewish minority. The declaration said that the Soviet Government, while proclaiming peace as its objective, stimulated Arab “aggressors” by its role in the Middle East arms race.

The DAIA expressed indignation over anti-Semitic policies practiced by the Polish regime and deep concern over the neo-Nazi revival in West Germany. The organization stressed its concern over recent anti-Semitic manifestations in Argentina and declared that public opinion was awaiting condemnation of the instigators and a forthright repudiation by the authorities. The authorities, it said, could discourage those who persisted in damaging the nation’s image.
