THE SILVER LINING: Every cloud has its silver lin-
ing. There is a silver lining even in the obscene resolution
adopted by the United Nations General Assembly equating
Zionism with racism.
The resolution has, in fact, done a valuable service to
the Zionist cause. It has strengthened non-Jewish sympa-
thy for Zionism. Jewish organizations are flooded now with
messages from non-Jewish personalities and various Pro-
testant and Catholic groups expressing abhorrence toward
the UN General Assembly for adopting this resolution and
declaring strong feelings for Zionism as a democratic
movement.
Some of the delegates of the underdeveloped countries
who voted for the resolution at the Assembly are now begin-
ning to-realize their mistake. They never expected that the
American nation — the President, the Congress, the entire
press, the churches, the labor unions, the black leadership,
the average American — would react so strongly against
linking Zionism to'racisni. They are now admitting in pri-
vate conversations in the UN diplomatic lobbies — even in
talks with Israeli diplomats — that they misjudged the pos-
sible effect the resolution will have on Americans. They
meekly explain their vote by stating that they voted under
duress.
The unanimity with which the governments of all civi-
lized European countries have condemned the resolution
has also given for thought to - many delegates from the un-
derdeveloped countries who voted for the resolution. Their
lands are, after all, dependent on American aid for food,
financial'assistance and technological guidance, as well as
on support from the industrial countries in Western Eu-
rope.
SOVIET STRATEGY: Many countries now consider
the UN Assembly resolutionas nothing but a "paper resolu-
tion" since the Assembly has no authority to enforce its res-
olutions. Not so the Soviet Union.
The Soviet delegation at the United Nations is losing-no
time to make capital of this resolution for its anti-Jewish
propaganda. A statement against American Jews issued by
the Soviet delegation uses for the first time the language of
the UN resolution. It attacks American Jews as "Zionist
racists."
This indicates the new line upon which Moscow's anti-
Semitic propaganda will embark both inside the Soviet
Union and abroad. Under the cover of the UN resolution, all
Communist countries will now probably follow the signal
from Moscow to gear their anti-Jewish propaganda to the
language of the UN Assembly resolution.
The Arabs too are losing no time to exploit the UN'reso-
lution. They now brag that they feel sufficiently fortified by
the resolution to demand the explusion of Israel from the
UN.
JEWISH MOODS: Israel's representatives at the
United Nations are little worried whether the Arabs may
succeed in their contemplated attempt to oust the Jewish
state from participating in the Assembly. They consider the
Assembly now as nothing but a debating forum. So does the
U.S. government, which has already notified the UN of the
possibility that while remaining within -the Assembly, its
delegates may. choose not foNparticipate 1n Assembly's
debates.
The major Jewish organizations are, naturally, very
much on the alert now in watching the utilization by the
Arabs and by Moscow of the UN resolution for their anti-
Jewish purposes in this country.
Leaders of the national Jewish organizations are espe-
cially gratified by the outspoken stand taken by the U,S.
government against the resolution. They believe that the
time has come now for the U.S. government to reassess its
support of the UN and to consider not only selective partici-
pation in the UN Assembly but also selective funding of UN
projects.

KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
(JTA) — The Conservative
movement in Judaism,
moved toward formal affi
liation with the World Zion-
ist Organization "as a repu-
diation of the UN resolution
equating Zionism wit k rac-
ism," it was disclosed here
at the biennial convention of
the United Synagogue of
America, the congregational
arm of Conservative Juda-
ism representing more than
1.5 million Jews in 830 affi-
liated synagogues in the
United States and Canada.
Declaring that "Zionism

is Judaism_ and Judaism is
Zionism," Arthur J. Levine,
president of the United Syn-
agogue of America, said
that affiliation would be ef-
fected through the World
Council of Synagogues, the
international organization
of Conservative congrega-
tions which has its head-
quarters in Jerusalem. The
council's president, Samuel
Rothstein, disclosed that its
board of directors has held a
policy meeting here on• affi-
liation with the WZO and
will take final action in De-
cember.
