Dr. Nehemias Resnizky, secretary of the DAIA, charged that “tons of anti-Jewish propaganda tenaciously attempting to identify Peronism with the Arab cause” have been distributed attempting to stir up tension and hate in Argentina. He said that Montoneros, a Peronist group, has disowned an anti-Jewish leaflet distributed in its name. In a message to the Argentine news media, Dr. Resnizky, speaking for the DAIA, the Buenos Aires Kehilla and the Argentine Zionist Organization, declared:

“We formulate through the press a fervent call to the Arab community in Argentina with which we always lived in harmony not to let itself be dragged into provocation.” Dr. Resnizky said both communities should continue to live together. He charged that in response to the “imperialist designs” of the Soviet Union, a war “without precedent has been activated against Israel.” Dr. Resnizky concluded that “we wish to mobilize all sectors of opinion to support warmly this small people (Israel) battling gallantly for its existence.”
