PARIS (Jun. 9)
The newspaper Le Monde reported that an anti-Semitic “whispering campaign” is going on in the city of Orleans where anonymous letters and posters attacking Jews have appeared. The paper said the campaign was characterized by word-of-mouth slander accusing Jews of engaging in white slave traffic. It called on police authorities to act promptly before the campaign spreads to other cities.
Le Monde has published a six-page special supplement devoted to “France and the Arab world” which stresses the interdependence between the two and their links of trade and culture. Political circles here saw significance in the appearance of the supplement a week before the run-off Presidential elections.
