British Labor Party Parley to Act on Strong Mideast Resolution Upholding Israel

A strong resolution on the Middle East situation proclaiming Israel’s “absolute right” to exist as a sovereign state and to enjoy the right of free passage through international waterways has been included on the agenda of the forthcoming British Labor Party conference and appears certain of adoption.

The resolution, sponsored by the British Poale Zion, also expresses concern that no advance has yet been made toward peace in the Middle East; records the conviction that cease-fire violations and terrorism are an escalation towards a new war, and deplores the continuing unbalanced supply of arms to the Middle East. The party conference will open at Brighton on Sept. 29.
