Zionists to Participate in ‘combat Anti-zionism Week’

Download PDF for this date

Bernice Tannenbaum, chairman of the World Zionist Organization-American Section, hailed “Combat Anti-Zionism Week” — Project CASAZ — as an important continuation of the campaign to condemn as a shameful canard the 1975 United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379 equating Zionism with racism.

“The WZO-American Section is pleased to join the sponsors of CASAZ, the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists, in declaring November 7 through 14, 1987, to be Combat Anti-Zionism Week. We will help in every way to promote the observance of this project as an effective public education and counter-propaganda effort.”

She added: “I will call upon our American Jewish communities everywhere to conduct events during this week, and to invite their non-Jewish neighbors to join them.”

Noting that the WZO’s worldwide campaign against this nefarious UN resolution is achieving major results, Tannenbaum praised the chairwomen of CASAZ, Judge Hadassa Ben Itto and Frances Bernstein, for their leadership. Project CASAZ events are being planned for New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston and Orlando, and college campuses.
