A threat of hanging for two Argentine Jewish leaders was made in an article today in the weekly “Panorama” by Augisto Moscoso, leader of the right-wing extremists Guardia Restauradora Nacionalista. The rightist leader was quoted as declaring that “If some day I am able to influence this Government, I assure you that the least I will do is hanging in the Plaza de Mayor Isaac Goldenberg and Leon Perez.” Dr. Goldenberg is president of the DAIA, the representative central body of Argentine Jewry. Mr. Perez is an Argentine Zionist leader. The plaza is a square in front of the Government House.
