A resolution urging the removal of the anti-Israel mural from the Jordanian Pavilion at the World’s Fair was introduced today by Senator Joseph Zaretzki, Minority Leader in the New York State Senate and a member of the World’s Fair board of directors.

The resolution which Sen. Zaretski introduced at the World Fair Board meeting, instructs the World’s Fair Corporation officers to demand of the Jordan Pavilion officials that the mural “be forthwith removed and that, upon failure to remove the same, the sublease of the Jordan Pavilion be canceled and the Pavilion closed.” (No decision was made known at the time the Bulletin went to press.)

The New York City Council is expected to adopt a similar resolution at its session tomorrow, The Council’s executive had already approved such a resolution last week.
