The news service, Telepress, ori¬ ginating In Prague, Czechoslovakia, quoted Kol Haam (Voice of the People), the organ of the Israeli Communist Party, as charging that "thla step was taken after Ben- Gurion'a government consulted with the British and American am¬ bassadors." The orj^an of the Reds urged the government "to cancel Its shame¬ less decision." "The voice of Is¬ rael's youth fighting for peace and against the remilitarization of Germany must be heard." the Com¬ munist paper concluded according to Telepress. NEW YORK (AJP) - A denial ot wide-spread Jewish deportation In Hungary -reportedly made by the enslaved state's Jewish or¬ ganizations' was challenged here this week by a leading religious spokesman who defied the Com¬ munist country to allow throe Jewish representatives to tour the Iron Curtain country and "see first-hand what the situation ia to¬ day." The reported denial of evictions came from the M.T.I., official Hun¬ garian news agency, which quoted a Joint statement by the Council of Rabbis and the National Com¬ mittee of Hungarian Jews. According to the Red news ser¬ vice the Jewish organizations branded reports of S,(X)0 Jewiah de¬ portations as "mean slanders" spread by the "Western press and radio" against Hungary. "There Is not one person of the J"i;wlsh religion who was removed because he was a member of our denomination." the Jewish leaders were quoted as having declared in tt joint statement. The Red news service's state¬ ment was challenged here late this week by Dr. Isaac Lewin. chair¬ man of the World Executive American section Agudas Israel, a world wide group representing re¬ ligious Jewry. Dr. Lewin, also pro¬ fessor of Jewish history at Yeshiva tJnlverslly, appeared before a Unit¬ ed Nation's body two weeks ago to assail wide spread deportation of Jews in Hungary and Rumania. The spokesman told the Ameri¬ can Jewish Press this week that alnce his appearance at UN addl: tional reports of deportation of Hungary's Jews have been received here.
