The Jerusalem Post: US Jewish groups seek to stifle Iran-led NAM - B'nai B'rith VP says while Iran assumes chairmanship, member states should downgrade participation.
By Herb Keinon
With Iran posed to assume chairmanship later this month of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) for the next three years, member states should significantly downgrade their participation in that framework, Daniel Mariaschin, executive vice president of B’nai B’rith International, has said.
As is done every year, Mariaschin, as well as the heads of other major US Jewish organizations – such as the Anti-Defamation league, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations and the World Jewish Congress – will meet together with leaders from some 40 countries attending the UN General Assembly meeting in New York in September.
One of the main issues on the agenda of the talks, that will include leaders from a number of NAM countries, will be the subject of Iran’s leadership of that organization, said Mariaschin, currently on a visit to Israel.
