Senator Pays Visit to West Bank

Download PDF for this date

The American news media presents a false image of Jewish settlers in the West Bank, Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) said here Monday.

There is no foundation to the image created by American television of “scared people holding Uzi submachine guns in their hands,” Inouye said.

“They even have a country club,” he said.

He was speaking of the West Bank settlement of Alfei Menashe, which he visited in order to get better acquainted with the settlements.
