U.S. Zionists Charge “big Three” with Evasion of Responsibility

Download PDF for this date

Zionist groups in the United States protested today against the “Big Three” resolution on Kibya which was circulated yesterday among members of the United Nations Security Council. Dissatisfaction with the resolution was also indicated today from the Arab side. Dr. Charles Malik, the only Arab member on the Security Council, said that he may introduce his own resolution.

At a press conference today, Louis Lipsky, chairman of the American Zionist Council, which speaks for all Zionist groups in this country, stated that the Big Three resolution “is a total evasion” of the American-British-French responsibility for the “tragic situation “that has arisen on the Israel-Jordan borders. A statement issued by Mr. Lipsky on behalf of the AZC,said:

Never before has there been a resolution of the UN Security Council on the Palestine question that did not firmly and unequivocally call for the conclusion of permanent peace in the area. Now, by deliberate choice of termimology, the great powers have made it possible for the Arab states to continue their policy of refusing to negotiate peace with Israel. They have given the green light to Arab aggressors to continue their war against Israel by all means short of outright hostilities.
