8 World Zionist Groups Call for Campaign to Stop UN Resolution

Download PDF for this date

The eight world Zionist unions have called on “every single Jew” in the world to Join in a mass petition project aimed at defeating the resolution equating Zionism with racism when it comes up before the United Nations General Assembly this month. “The striking reply to the anti-Zionist onslaught and the anti-Semitic attack is that every Jew should declare with his head high, ‘I am a Zionist,'” a joint memorandum issued here yesterday said.

The memorandum was signed by the Labor Zionist movement, the World Confederation of United Zionists, the Mizrachi-Hapoel Hamizrachi World Union; Herut, Mapam, the Independent Liberals and WIZO.

The memorandum stated that the condemnation of Zionism by the UN Third Committee strengthens anti-Semitism, places in doubt the right of the State of Israel to exist, and endangers the existence of Jews everywhere.
