U.N. Requested to Take Firm Action to Curb Syrian Terrorism

Download PDF for this date

The Mizrachi Women’s Organization of America today adopted a resolution urging the United Nations Security Council to take “firm, vigorous, and undiluted action to curb Syrian terrorism.”

The resolution, adopted at the close of the keynote session of the 41st Annual-National Convention of the group, appealed to the U.N. for speed and urgent consideration to reduce growing tension in the Middle East.” More than 1,000 delegates, representing 50,000 members in 37 states recorded appreciation of the U.S. role in “seeking a reasonable resolution to end acts of infiltration, aggression, and hostility by Syrian-based terrorists.”

The Mizrachi Women’s resolution warned that “the consequences of delay, inaction, or inconclusive direction by the Security Council can lead only to a grave heightening of tensions, and to a further deterioration of control by the United Nations Truce Organization in the area.”

Mrs. Louis Gitelman, of the Bronx, N.Y., served as chairman of the opening session which heard Rabbi Mordecai Kirshblum, member of the Jewish Agency Executive and Israel Ambassador Avraham Harman, on the problem of Israeli security. In a presidential report, Mrs. Eli Resnikoff, of Brooklyn, N.Y., said Israel’s security problems “will be met with the knowledge that self defense is the right of any nation as it is the right of any individual.”
