Jews Deplore Attacks on Arabs in U.S.

Two national Jewish organizations have condemned recent attacks on Arab Americans in several U.S. cities, which have apparently been spurred by the U.S. confrontation with Iraq in the Persian Gulf.

A statement adopted by the executive committee of the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council said: “We must not allow strong feelings engendered by the current crisis in the Persian Gulf to generate intimidation of those Americans who are of Arab descent.”

The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith decried violent attacks on Arab Americans as “unacceptable manifestations of bigotry.”
