Zionist Leader Seeks Klm Apology

Mrs. Charlotte Jacobson, chairman of the World Zianist Organization-American Section, has criticized the large KLM Royal Dutch Airlines display advertisement in The New York Times of October 28 that erased Tel Aviv from the list of Middle East, Far East and African cities to which KLM flies.

Mrs. Jacobson in her letter to Sergio Orlandini, President of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, said, in part:

“If Tel Aviv does not exist for KLM, perhaps the Jewish people should be advised that KLM should not exist as on airline for Jews. I believe an apology and a correction are in order.” A copy of this letter was also sent to J.J. Dekker, general manager for North America, for KLM Airlines.
