Annotation: THIS NARRATIVE REPORT SUMMARIZES STATEMENTS TO THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY ON OCTOBER 21 AND 22, 1971, ABOUT TERRORIST ACTS AGAINST UN MISSIONS IN NEW YORK CITY.
Abstract: THE SERIES OF STATEMENTS WAS INITIATED BY THE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SOVIET UNION AFTER FOUR RIFLE SHOTS WERE FIRED AT THE SOVIET MISSION. THE SHOTS WERE FIRED FROM A HUNTER COLLEGE BUILDING USED FREQUENTLY BY ZIONIST ORGANIZATIONS, INCLUDING THE JEWISH DEFENSE LEAGUE (JDL), TO WHICH THE SOVIET UNION ASSIGNED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE TERRORIST ACT. THE SOVIET REPRESENTATIVE CRITICIZED THE U.S. FOR FAILING TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF U.N. MISSIONS AND FOR PERMITTING HOSTILE CAMPAIGNS BY ZIONIST ORGANIZATIONS AGAINST THE SOVIET UNION AND ITS CITIZENS IN THE U.S. THE REPRESENTATIVE OF SAUDI ARABIA ADDED THAT THREATS AND ATTACKS AGAINST U.N. DELEGATES HAD OFTEN OCCURRED IN NEW YORK CITY, WHERE POLITICIANS ACTIVELY SUPPORT TERRORIST GROUPS. THE U.S. REPRESENTATIVE EXPRESSED REGRET OVER THE SHOOTINGS AND INSISTED THAT POLICE AGENCIES WERE DEVOTING FULL ATTENTION TO INVESTIGATING THE CASE. REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE SOVIET UNION, THE UKRANIAN SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLIC, SYRIA, SAUDI ARABIA, AND IRAQ ALL STRONGLY CRITICIZED THE JDL, ZIONISM, AND ISRAEL, ALONG WITH U.S. INEFFECTIVENESS IN PREVENTING TERRORISM AGAINST U.N. MISSIONS. REPRESENTATIVES OF ISRAEL, THE UNITED KINGDOM, AND THE U.S. SPOKE IN DEFENSE OF U.S. POLICY AND REFUTED CLAIMS MADE BY THE OTHER REPRESENTATIVES. (CFW)
