The Arab League headquarters in Cairo has instructed its New York representatives to urge Arab representatives at the United Nations to ask the U.N. for its attitude on alleged “racial discrimination” against Arabs living in Israel, according to a Cairo dispatch received here today.

Charging that such discrimination exists, the League declared the situation of the Arabs in so-called “occupied Palestine” constituted a “flagrant violation” of the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration on Human Rights.
