B’nai B’rith Urges Affiliates to Campaign for UN Treaty on Terrorism

A campaign of encouraging their respective governments to support a United Nations Convention against terrorism is being initiated by its affiliates throughout the world, B’nai B’rith reported. David M. Blumberg, B’nai B’rith president, in a telegram to Secretary of State William P. Rogers, expressed his organization’s endorsement of the draft of an international treaty to prevent and punish terrorism which Rogers presented in his address Sept. 25 to the UN General Assembly. Blumberg commended the US effort as a “vigorous and worthy challenge” to the UN to act against terrorism. “International support is basic if the initiatives against terrorism taken by the United States are to be effective,” he said. B’nai B’rith has units in 40 countries.
