Zionist Council Plans to Counter Anti-Israel
Propaganda; Concerned at Volunteers' Decline

four-day session of the Zion-
ist General Council ended
with announcement of plans
for a world-wide information
campaign to counter massive
anti-Israel propaganda. The
campaign will stress the
"absolute right" of the Jew-
ish people to the land of Is-
rael, Israel's aspirations for
peace, and the link between
the energy crisis with eco-
nomic and political factors,
rather than with the Mideast
The Council urged inter-
national organizations, such
as the Red Cross and the
United Nations, to do their
utmost to induce Syria to
treat Israeli POWs in ac-
cordance with the Geneva
Convention and agree to an

exchange of POWs with Is-
The delegates suggested
formation of a common front
of oil-consuming countries to
achieve a common policy to-
ward the "political and eco-
nomic blackmail" used by
the Arob oil states, as well
as greater efforts to produce
alternative sources of en-
The delegates noted "with
regret" a drop in volunteers
coming to Israel in recent
months at a time when Is-
rael needed more manpower
and called on all Jewish
organizations to encourage
Jewish youth to become vol-
unteers, declaring it con-
sidered the volunteer effort
a permanent program.
Yitzhak Navon, chairman

Jews Put Peron
Govt. in a Tough
Spot, Aide Says

dent Juan D. Peron's per-
sonal secretary, Jose Lopez
Rega, has created a political
controversy here by suggest-
ing that the presence of
Jews in the Argentine gov-
ernment has put the country
at a disadvantage in negoti-
ations with Arab nations.
Citing his recent trip to
Libya to negotiate oil and
trade agreements, Lopez
Reg.a told a group of Arab
diplomats and Argentine citi-
zens of Arab extraction that
the use of names of Jewish
government of f i c i a l s on
cablegrams sent from
Buenos Aires to the Argen-
tine mission he headed in
Libya led to misunderstand-
ings with Arab officials

going on in


of the Zionist Council, de-
clared that if the world
Zionist movement fails to
organize mass immigration,
"the state would be well ad-
vised to appeal directly to
Jews abroad and help form
groups of would-be immi-
The one discordant note
was the boycott of the ses-
sions by the World Confed-
eration of General Zionists
who notified the Jewish
Agency that attending would
conflict with their position of
non-identification with politi-
cal parties in Israel.

Lopez Rega, who is the
most powerful figure after
Peron in the Argentine gov-
ernment, said that the
Libyans held a mistaken
view of his country's Position
with respect to Arab coun-
tries because of "religious
aspects linked with the com-
position of the Argentine
Officials here and politi-
cians who were asked for
comment agreed almost
unanimously that Lopez
Rega's remarks appeared to
be directed against his chief
rival for political power in
the cabinet, Finance Minis-
ter Jose Ber Gelbard, who
is Jewish, the New York
Times reported.
Some politicians remarked
that although Peron strongly
backed Gelbard a few
months ago, the latter might
be falling into disfavor due to
the government's decision to
improve its relations with
Arab countries in view of the
energy crisis.
Francisco Manrique of the
center-right Alianza Republi-
cana Federulista, a candidate
in the March, 1973 elections,
said the action of the welfare
minister in inviting local
Arabs to hear a report on
his Libyan trip depressed
He said that in Argentina
"we never divide" on the
basis of being the "offspring"
of some group. He added that
"this is a way of bringing
the Middle East problem to
Argentina." His criticism
was published in the morn-
ing newspaper, La Opinion.
