Israel to Intensify Information Campaign

The Foreign Ministry is sending 24 of its top officials to Western Europe and-South America to help with Israel’s information campaign. The heads of the departments and former ambassadors will spend several weeks abroad. They will assist on the spot information officers and will seek to establish contacts with government officials, parliamentarians and the news media.

The heightened information campaign by the Foreign Ministry stems from a growing conviction that public opinion in Europe is not sympathetic with the European government policies in the Mideast–particularly their surrender to Arab oil pressures. Public disquiet with the policies of European governments has been increasingly reflected in the press, especially in Germany and Britain, and to a leaser degree in France.

There will be no Bulletin Nov. 22 due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
