See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Chicago City Council adopted a resolution here today condemning recent Arab terrorist raids against Israel as “endangering the peace of the world” and calling on President Johnson, Congress and the State Department “to use their best efforts to bring about a peaceful solution in the Middle East.” The measure, which was introduced by Alderman Jack I. Sperling, was adopted unanimously by the Chicago City Council.

Stressing the aggressive intentions of both Syria and Jordan, the resolution urged the U.S. Government to “use its best efforts to secure the peace of the Middle East, solve the many problems that are truly solvable in the Middle East and convince by their firm action the entire world that the State of Israel has the full support of the United States to peaceably exist with its neighbors in the community of nations of the world.”
