Jewish Democratic Committee Intensifies Anti-zionist Campaign in Rumania

Download PDF for this date

The Jewish Democratic Committee of Rumania has renewed its anti-Zionist campaign in this country following the disclosure that two of the co-defendants of former Hungarian Foreign Minister Laszlo Rajk in the recently-concluded Budapest conspiracy trials were former Zionists.

A front-page editorial in the Committee’s official organ, “Unirea,” described the testimony of the two defendants as “highly significant,” adding that the Budapest trial showed that Zionism is “one of the main points of support of international reaction.” The paper continued: “The Budapest trial unmasked the poisoned character of Zionism as a branch of war-mongering big finance. The trial teaches the Jewish working people to continue their fight against Zionism as a condition of insuring a lasting peace.”
