THE DETROIT JEWISR NEWS

Friday, Dec. 6, 1974-29

NEW YORK, N.Y.—The
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith Nov. 29 protested
to Pope Paul VI "the award-
ing of the distinguished John
XXIII Peace Prize to
UNESCO" in the light of the
grievous injustice done to Is-
rael by the United Nations
agency.
Recalling that he was a
member of the delegation- of
American Jews which Pope
John greeted with the mes-
sage, "I am Joseph, your
brother," Benjamin R. Ep-
stein, ADL national director,
sent a night letter to the
Holy Father expressing his
and the League's "profound
personal anguish" that the
award was made.
In a separate comment on
the award, Mr.. Epstein de-
clared that it is a tragic and
ironic commentary that
UNESCO is recognized by
the Roman Catholic Church
for its excellent work of the
past at the very moment the
U.N. agency has reversed its
field and sabotaged its own
work by yielding to the
pressure of the automatic
Arab-dominated majority in
the General Assembly.
He went on to say that it
is unfortunate that the tim-
ing of this award may make
it appear as if the Roman
Catholic Church is endors-
ing the UNESCO action
against Israel, an action
which is negation of the phil-
osophy and attitude of Pope
John XXIII.
