  • Description

    THE ISRAELI NEW COMMUNIST PARTY, A PRO-SOVIET COMMUNIST GROUP, YESTERDAY CALLED FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION OF NOVEMBER, 1967, FOR A PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT. IN A SERIES OF RESOLUTIONS APPROVED AT THE END OF A THREE-DAY CONVENTION, THE GROUP ALSO SHARPLY CRITICISES THE POLICIES OF THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT.

    THE GROUP CALLED FOR AN END TO WHAT IT DESCRIBED AS THE SYSTEM OF REPRESSION AND COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENTS IN AREAS OCCUPIED BY ISRAEL, THE DEPORTATIONS AND THE MASS ARRESTS.

    SEVERAL COMMUNIST OFFICIALS - INCLUDING TWO FROM THE SOVIET UNION - ATTENDED THE CONFERENCE OF 367 DELEGATES, HALF OF THEM JEWS AND THE OTHER HALF ARABS LIVING IN ISRAEL.

    THE NEW COMMUNIST PARTY WAS FORMED AFTER A SPLIT IN THE ISRAELI COMMUNIST PARTY SHORTLY AFTER THE MIDDLE EAST WAR IN JUNE, 1967.

    THE TWO SOVIET OFFICIALS, MR. VASILY SHAURO, HEAD OF THE CULTURAL DEPARTMENT OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE SOVIET COMMUNIST PARTY, AND MR. P. RUMYANTSEV, OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE'S STAFF, WERE THE FIRST SOVIET OFFICIALS TO VISIT ISRAEL SINCE THE BREAK IN DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR.

    THE CONVENTION WAS TOLD THAT THE PRESENCE OF THE TWO VISITORS WAS PROOF OF THE IMPORTANCE ATTACHED BY MOSCOW TO THE "STRUGGLE OF THE NEW COMMUNIST PARTY IN ISRAEL FOR A PEACEFUL POLITICAL SOLUTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH RESOLUTION OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL".

    (THE SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION OF NOVEMBER, 1967, DEMANDED ISRAELI WITHDRAWAL FROM ARAB TERRITORY OCCUPIED DURING THE SIX-DAY WAR AND AT THE SAME TIME CALLED ON ARAB COUNTRIES TO RECOGNISE THE EXISTENCE OF ISRAEL AS A STATE).
