FOLLOWING his propaganda work in London, Yusif el Bandek arrived in this country in the summer of 1949. In November of that year he called upon Merwin K. Hart--long an admirer of Franco's system--carrying a letter of introduction from Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Morgan, who in 1946 was removed as chief of UNRRA in Germany after making remarks about European refugees which were widely construed to be anti-Jewish. "GeneralMorgan has told me I could put entire confidence in Bandak," Hart later explained in his National Economic Council Letter. "This was enough for me. Vice-Admiral Charles S. Freeman, U.S.N., retired, who has devoted much time to Mr. Bandak, and I, quickly became satisfied that Bandak was all he professed to be." Following this confession, Hart instituted a new series of anti-Semitic attacks in his Letter, of which the following, in the December 15, 1949, issue, is typical:
For because of their overbearing greed and their recent and present willingness to involve this country in every kind of evil, they ["Zionist Jews"] are the number one enemy of American liberty and the Christian church. They are the outstanding cause of most of the dire troubles facing America today. . . .
A wealth of evidence can be adduced to show that the Zionists have Mr. Truman's Administration in the hollow of their hand. The Socialist program is their program. . . . When the American people awaken to what they have already done and what they seek to do, their wrath will be truly terrible.
