Czechoslovak Regime Launches Anti-israel, Anti-zionist Campaign Similar to USSR

Download PDF for this date

Czechoslovakia’s Communist regime has embarked on an anti-Israel, anti-Zionist campaign modeled on that in the Soviet Union, according to reports from Prague. In a special feature, Radio Prague declared: “Zionism tried to create artificially a Jewish nation. Lenin has said that such a nation does not exist. He gave Soviet Jews the opportunity to create a Jewish state inside the Soviet Union, but the Jews proved that they had lost the capacity to run a country of their own.” An article in the ideological journal “Nova Myal” stated: “Zionism is a reactionary movement of Jewish-Fascist and chauvinist-racialist origin, supported by Jewish millionaires in America and Britain. Jewish capitalists not only decide on the policies of Israel but also represent the imperialist powers’ influence on her.”
