Download PDF for this date

Arab propaganda activities have become more aggressive and widespread in France in recent weeks since the establishment of the “Arab-French Solidarity Committee,” it was reported here. The committee is currently holding a special “Palestine Week” devoted to the plight of Arab refugees and of Arabs in Israel-held territory. The committee is also organizing special friendship societies among intellectuals and has begun publication of a bi-monthly magazine.

Reports reaching here from Beirut said that the ousted former head of the anti-Zionist American Council for Judaism, Rabbi Elmer Berger, has become a “hero” of the Arab countries where he has been lecturing and addressing public meetings. Rabbi Berger is due in Cairo next week for a series of lectures at the invitation of the Arab League, the reports said. His speeches denounce Israel and Zionism and voice unlimited support for the Arab cause.
