racism should be the subject
of a study.
The issue of racial dis-
crimination was a major
item on the agenda of the
current session of the UN
Sub-Commission on the
Prevention of Discrimina-
tion and Protection of
Minorities. The WJC,' re-
presented by its European
Branch director, Daniel
Lack, .told the body, "We
would be failing in our duty
if we did not draw the atten-
tion of the members of the
Sub-Commission to the re-
vival of the age-old scourge
of anti-Semitism . . . and
more particularly racist and
anti-Semitic terrorism."
The meeting, which
witnessed violent attacks
against the Israel action
in Lebanon, received a
proposal by the Pakis-
tani representative,
Munir Akram, that a Sy-
rian suggestion be taken
up which recommended
a formal study showing
that Zionism was a . form
of racism. Upon taking
the floor, the WJC repre-
sentative denounced the
"attempt to compare
Zionism to Nazi ideology
(as) one of the most
obscene equations of de-
ranged minds."
Lack, speaking on behalf
of both the WJC and the In-
ternational Council • of
Jewish Women, recalled
that in. April the Parlia-
ment of the European
Community unanimously
condemned the refusal of
Pakistan to admit a
humanitarian European
parliamentary delegation
concerned with refu-
gees in Pakistan led by
Gerard Israel, solely be-
cause of his Jewish ancestry
and his connection with a
Jewish charitable organiza-
tion. "We call on the Sub-
Commission in the context
of this item to prescribe
such transparent attempts
. . . for spreading obnoxi-
ous racial slanders," Lack
added.
The Pakistaiii represen-
tative demanded the floor to
reply and endorsed the posi-
tion of his government
which was "against the phi-
losophy of Zionism." He re-
ferred to the "arrogance" of
Lack's statement, remark-
ing it was "testimony to a
racist attitude."
