Dutch Organizations Protest to Thant Treatment of Jews in Arab Countries

Three major Dutch Jewish organizations Joined in a protest today to United Nations Secretary General U Thant over the treatment of the Jews in the Arab states. They urged the UN to investigate the treatment of these Jews and take appropriate measures to protect them.

(The Security Council approved a resolution last week to send an emissary to study the treatment of the Arab civilian population in the territories occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War. It took no action on the Israeli demand that the humanitarian mission be instructed also to study the plight of the Jewish minorities in the Arab countries.)
