Comay, who visited South
America last summer, during
the height of the resurgence
of anti-Semitism in various
countries, including Argen-
tina, Uruguay and Guatemala,
declared: "It might be tempt-
ing to dismiss most of these
incidents as the work of luna-
tics or juvenile delinquents.
Of late, organized Nazi groups
have become bolder in some
countries. Their leaders are
frustrated would-be fuehrers,
surrounded by youthful and
black - shirted storm - troopers
who were hardly born when
the Third Reich died. In their
public rallies there are heard
once again the obscene cries
of the Nazi era.
"I have no wish to exaggerate

the size or importance of these
groups, or the measure of their
menace. Yet we cannot ignore
them, or persuade ourselves that
they will wither away before de-
rision. Such movements feed
upon intolerance and envy; they
gain support from former Nazis
who have found refuge else-
where, or from local reactionary
elements; and they seem to find
ample funds for public demon-
strations, floods of anti-Semitic
pamphlets, and the legal costs of
their defense on those occasions
when they are prosecuted."
Comay also criticized "law-
abiding and liberal" countries
like the United States and Brit-
ain, naming such neo-Nazis as
England's Colin Jordan and
America's George Lincoln Rock-
well on whose behalf," he
charged, "freedom of speech is
invoked to protect its very nega-
tion: the -preaching of totali-
tarian doctrines. In the face of
this democratic quandry," he
said, "insufficient account has
been taken of the fact that Naz-

ism in all its manifestations be-
came recognized as criminal
after World War II, and that
many Nazi leaders have been
found guilty of this crime not
only at the Nuremberg Trials

but under various national legal

"Let me say in all fairness
that the activities of the Rock-
wells and Colin Jordans and
their counterparts in Latin
America and elsewhere are
arousing the contempt of re-
sponsible public opinion, and
more serious attention than
hitherto from the authorities
of the countries concerned.
These manifestations are far
from being only a Jewish mat-
ter. They may start with anti-
Jewish feeling, but the attack
soon broadens out to include
other groups against whom
latent prejudice can be in-
flamed, and in due course it
may undermine the whole,
fabric of society."

— Dr. Nahum Goldmann,
president of the World Jewish
Congress, disclosed here that
the WJC was seeking to hold
"constructive discussions" with
Soviet leaders on the situation
of Soviet Jewry.

Goldmann, who was here to
attend a conference of Latin
American communities sponsored
by the World Jewish Congress,
told a news conference that so
far there has been no reply
from Soviet authorities to the
WJC proposal for talks.
Goldmann stressed that the
situation of Soviet Jewry is the
problem of greatest concern to
world Jewry today. He left
shortly after the press confer-
ence for Israel, where he ad-

announced it has instructed its

of Jews in the Soviet Union as
a manifestation of religious in-
tolerance.

tolerance and to enact legisla-

the different local communities
within the country or between
them and Jewish communities
elsewhere.
"In brief, the Jewish commu-
nity of that country has been
tragically cut off from its own
rich religious and cultural heri-
tage, as well as from its Jewish
brethren in the rest of the
world. Their helplessness is
aggravated by the growing
(though by no means original)
trend to find Jewish scapegoats
for economic difficulties."
Bracketing the situation of
Jews in the Soviet Union and
the anti-Semitic outbreaks in
Latin America; Comay told the
committee that "hardly a week
has gone by during the current
year without a report of some
act of anti-Semitic violence in
some country. Bombs have been
thrown at Jewish schools. Jewish
business premises have been ma-
chine-gunned. Synagogues have
been bombed or set afire, or their
windows shattered by stones or
bricks. Gatherings have been at-
tacked by organized gangs of
hoodlums. Swastikas and filthy
slogans have been smeared on
buildings. Jewish cemeteries
have been desecrated and tomb-
stones uprooted. And, during
this last summer, there were two
incidents of young people ab-
ducted and tortured, with swas-
tikas branded into their flesh."

systems since then. Freedom of
expression has certain obvious
limits; it cannot properly be ex-
ploited to propagate concepts
which the civilized world has
branded as inherently criminal."
