BUENOS AIRES (Aug. 10)
Some of Argentina’s leading anti-Semites, including Arab League agent Hussein Triki and a retired Air Force general, attended a banquet here last night honoring Juan Carlos Cornejo Linares, a member of Parliament, who recently introduced a bill calling for the creation of an “Anti-Argentine Activities Committee” and naming Zionism specifically as an anti-Argentine activity.
The principal address was delivered by Brig. Gen. Gilberto Oliva, a retired Air Force officer, who has been closely identified with the anti-Semitic movement in this country. The former commander of the Argentine Air Force, Brig. Gen. Cayo Alsina, sent a telegram greeting the diners. Among those present were Triki; the Rev. Anancio Gonzalez Paz, a Catholic priest; and Gerardo Valenzuela, national commander of the Guardia Restaurodora Nacionalista. The latter, a notorious anti-Semitic group, has been officially outlawed for the last two years, along with the neo-Nazi Tacuara movement, but both these organizations continue to operate openly.
Anti-Semitic slogans were shouted at the meeting, Triki, who has been conducting an anti-Semitic campaign here, was lauded highly by all the speakers who equated Zionism and Judaism with “anti-Argentine activities.”
