Arab Propagandist
With U.S. Experience
at Work in Argentina

MIAMI — An Arab propaganda
agent who engaged in anti-Semitic
activities in the United States 20
years ago is "the major force- be-
hind a new virulent anti-Semitic
and anti-Israel campaign in Ar-
gentina," the director of the Latin
American affairs- department of
the Anti-Defamation' League of
Bnai Brith, revealed.
He Identified the agent as Yusif

Addressing a dinner meeting of
ADL's Society of Fellows at- the
Dupont Plaza Hotel here, Rabbi
Morton M. Rosenthal charged that
Albandak is "masterminding a con-
certed campaign by the Arab
League, pro-Arab front groups in
Argentina and anti-Semitic, right-
wing elements there to Isolate
Jews and create disunity."
. He said that ADL records show
Albandak, then spelling his name
el Bandak, engaged in lecture
tours in the U.S. in the early
1850s and left this country after
hie connections with known anti-
Semites here, in England and in
the Middle East were exposed.
Rabbi Rosenthal said Albandak's
current tactics in Argentina include
creating front groups, attacking the
local Jewish community and form-
ing alliances with local anti-
Semitic and anti-Israel elements.
He said these parallel his past
activities in England and the U.S.
