Graham Raps UN Resolution

Download PDF for this date

Evangelist Billy Graham, who arrived here yesterday for a two day visit at the invitation of Premier Yitzhak Rabin, said the United Nations had made a serious mistake in equating Zionism with racism. He noted that the recent General Assembly resolution was likely to backfire against the world organization and served to divide even more an already divided world. “If the definition of the resolution was correct then racism could be applied to many nations,” Graham said. During his visit here he plans to meet with former Premier Golda Meir and also visit Christian holy sites.
