August 1, 1949

A demand that the Chilean Government take action against the Chilean Arab newspaper Mundo Arabe if it continues its anti-Jewish campaign is voiced in the widely read Santiago newspaper Noticias de Ultima Hora, just received here.

The Santiago publication asserts that neither the Jewish nor Arab communities in Chile have any desire to war on each other, and charges the Arab newspaper and a radio station of the same name with inciting the people of Chile against the Jews. It adds that the Arabe Mundo served as a propaganda organ of the Nazis during the late war and as such was blacklisted by the Allies.
