The World Zionist Organization Executive, in a bitter statement, today condemned the anti-Zionist resolution passed by the non-aligned conference at Lima as in essence anti-Jewish. The Executive pledged to step up world-wide information campaigns to fight the Arab-led effort to smear the name and meaning of Zionism.

Zionist Federation leaders in many countries have been instructed to seek meetings with government leaders to explain the sinister overtones of the Lima resolutions–comparing Zionism to racism and fascism and of similar resolutions passed by the International Women’s Year meeting earlier in Mexico City and at the Organization of African Unity conference in Kampala, Uganda.

“The activities (of the Arab extremists and the PLO) at Lima…were not merely anti-Zionist but were part of a hate campaign against the entire Jewish people and against individual Jews everywhere,” said a statement read by acting chairman Leon Dulzin and approved by the entire Executive.
