Mass Information Campaign on Peace to Start Soon

Download PDF for this date

The Israel Information Center intends to initiate a mass information campaign devoted to the subject of peace between Israel and Egypt in coming weeks, it was reported today. The campaign, under the slogan “From a Peace Treaty Between two States to Peace Between Two Nations,” will focus on the many aspects of Israeli-Egyptian peace which have been overlooked until now. These include history, geography, culture, economics, and whatever else constitutes normal relations between two countries.

The publications department of the information Center is presently completing a documentary brochure which includes the entire text of the peace treaty, appendices and exchange of letters. It is also finishing a comprehensive volume which portrays the last 60 years or so of Israeli history, concluding with the signing of the peace treaty.

In addition to extensive publications now in the planning stage, the Center intends to convene conferences of public relations personnel establish contact with students, teachers and members of different movements throughout the country, and create permanent forums to explain the Israeli-Egyptian peace to the public at large. In addition this year’s Independence Day celebrations will be planned around the historic signing of the peace treaty and will focus on the new era of peace expected to follow.
