President Juan Peron was urged last night to instruct the Argentine delegation to the United Nations to vote for the inclusion of Jerusalem in the territorial limits of Israel. The appeal to the Argentine President was made at a meeting marking the second anniversary of the original U.N. Palestine partition decision and was attended by Jewish leaders representing all Zionist groups, the DATA and the United Israel Campaign.
Speakers at the rally emphasized that whatever the decision of the General Assembly might be, Jerusalem will become the capital of Israel. Pledges of support from the Jewish community here to Israel were also made.
