Swiss Jews Support Peace Now

Download PDF for this date

A committee supporting the Israeli Peace Now movement has been formed in French-speaking Switzerland. The heads of the Swiss group said at a press conference here that so far they had collected 200 signatures. Their movement is composed of Swiss Jews and foreign Jews living here.

They stated that they had no intention of interfering in Israel’s internal affairs, but they criticized Premier Menachem Begin for answering “Sadat’s brave visit to Jerusalem” with “blows on both cheeks in pursuing his policy of creating new settlements.” The Swiss movement is cooperating with the Peace Now movement in Israel, Paris and Belgium. A meeting will be held in Paris this week.
