Black Political-Parley Delegates
Condemn U.S. Aid to Israel

LITTLE ROCK, 'Ark. —
Delegates to the national
Black Political Convention
here adopted resolutions con-
demning American aid to
Israel at the expense of the
Arab refugees, but refused
to go along with another call-
ing for a separate black
political party.
The resolution, after being
toned down from its original
call for the withdrawal of
Israeli forces from Arab
land, "condemns the racism
of all racist officials" who
voted aid to Israel "while
ignoring the plight of Arab
Palestinian refugees."
This resolution was seen
as a victory against the
hardline black militants who
had sought a much stronger
resolution accusing Israel of
being "major instrument" of
a U.S. - dictated "w o r 1 d
strategy of monopoly to in-
crease profits and exploit all
people." (-
The stronger resolution was
introduced by the New Jer-
sey delegation.
Only three of the 16 black
Congressmen voted against
aid to Israel. They were
John Conyers of Michigan,
Parren Mitchell of Maryland
and Ronald V. Dellums• of
California, all Democrats.
The resolution condemning
Israel was the object of a
bitter behind-the-scenes fight
over the weekend as mili-
tants led by Imamu Baraka
from Newark (f or merly
known as LeRoi Jones),
sought to tie in the anti-
Israel statement with a gen-
eral resolution calling for the
destruction of "racism, capi-
talism and imperialism."
Leaders from the New York
and Indiana delegations, who
sought to water down the
resolution to prevent a bitter
floor fight, noted their op-
position for the record.
They told the 1,200 dele-
gates at the convention that
there was "considerable op-
, position" to the more mod-
erate resolution,

Baraka attacked Black
members of Congress who
voted to help Israel in its
struggle against the •Arabs.
Baraka said the U. S. had
stood by and watched thou-
sands of Africans .die of
famine and drought: He said
he would like to see a "uni-
fied Black front" that would
"attack those who have been
attacking us."
The three-day convention,
which drew about 3,000per-
sons, 1,718 of whom were
registered, tabled a resolu-
tion calling for establishment
of a national black political
party. Delegates said the
convention has not done the
necessary local organizing to
set up one
