The Zionist Executive meeting here this week mapped plans for continuing and strengthening the political and information policy the World Zionist Organization will carry out during the coming months. Avraham Shenker, head of the Organization and Information Department, said the WZO should hold in-depth discussion with the Foreign Ministry to adopt a common political information effort. He said that despite political differences within the Zionist movement the information policy should follow the outlines of the government’s policy.

Moshe Rivlin, director-general of the Jewish Agency, called upon the world Zionist federations to head the drive against the attempts to oust Israel from the United Nations. A committee composed of Yaacov Tzur, chairman of the Jewish National Fund, Rivlin and Shenker was formed to work out practical suggestions for new information efforts in the diaspora.
