Israel, we hear you! W %0 %r •
We hear you through a call that echoes through long, lonely
nights of waiting in border outposts as your brave men bolster their
spirit and dedicate themselves to your defense so that you will remain
free and not perish from this precious earth.
We hear you through ihe efforts you are constantly making to
promote peace while you have to continue the ugly and morbid
business of war--a war you do not want, a war you are willing to
negotiate any where, any place, any time.
We hear you, too, through the major contributions you are making
to uplift humanity while facing the greatest adversities in your own
economy. We hear your men in Africa, Asia and South America
trying to teach the downtrodden how to develop their resources and
Ah, how we do hear you, sweet Israel! We hear Dr. Sabin in his
search for a cancer cure at the Weizmann Institute at Rehovoth; we
hear Qr. Mazar dig into the antiquities of the past to find more insight
into man's relationships to his progeny; and we hear, close to these,
the chants and prayers at the Western Wall for Shalom, for Peace.
We hear the muffled cries of your children sleeping in their under-
ground shelters in a night filled with anxieties and we hear, too, the
swiftness of a jet darting into space to silence an enemy that could
really be a friend.

Israeli Planes Continue Suez Raids, Gov't Again
Asks Arabs to Abide by Cease Fire Agreements;
U.S. Denounces Both Sides for Failure to Halt War
Israel continued to hammer Egyptian emplacements along the Suez front early this week
in response to continued buildup of Arab positions and attempts to penetrate occupied ter-
ritories. One Israeli air attack along the Suez waterway lasted for over 214 hours according
to radio reports.
The Government in Jerusalem has reiterated Israel’s willingness to abide by the June,
1967 Cease Fire agreement if the Arabs will do likewise.
We hear of the valor and the miracle, each interwoven with the
And we know that your outstretched hand to Jews everywhere
who are persecuted, molested, tormented, deprived, tortured, and
finally killed is a living reality of the miracle-the promise and
performance that someone cares! You care, Israel. You have served
as a haven and refuge for millions whose fate might have been as
tragic as the millions who have perished before them.
We hear you in our minds, Israel.
We hear the call. It is clarion clear. It is like the splendid call of
the shofar, loud and resonant. Jews everywhere hear it and they
know its meaning.
Yes, We hear you, Israel.
We hear you in our hearts, too, through the millennia that are part
And we will never desert you!

DALLAS FEDERATION BOXSCORE:
As Dallas prepared for last night's Trades and Professions
Dinner of the current Federation Fund Raising Campaign a
tally showed that more than two and a half million dollars
had been contributed.
Representing approximately 750 pledges the figure reflects
a 10% increase in contributions to this date in 1969.
Secretary General U. Thant of
the United Nations recalled UN
Truce Observer and Mediator Gen.
Odd Bull to New York for con-
sultations on the deteriorating
Meanwhile the United States
denounced an Israeli bombing of
an Egyptian scrap metal plant in
a Cairo suburb last week in which
dozens of civilian workers were
killed in an attack which Israeli
officials said might have been made
The American criticism was con-
tained in a statement by Acting
Secretary of State Elliot Richard-
son, who also condemned the Arab
terrorist attack earlier in the week
against a busload of passengers
scheduled to board an El A1 plane
for a flight to London. The state-
ment said that the United States
appealed to both sides “to adhere
scrupulously to the cease-fire re-
solutions of the United Nations
Security Council and that they take
every possible step to assure” full
compliance with the cease-fire
agreements. Egypt denounced the
agreement last March and opened
an announced “war of attrition’
against Israel with sustained attacks
at the Suez Canal which led to
the current daily blows and coun-
ter-blows, including Israel’s deep
penetration of Egypt.
The United States also pressed
for restoration of the cease-fire
agreements at the 26th meeting
last week of the Big Four envoys
to the United States and for
President Nixon’s proposal for a
Big Four agreement on curbing of
arms shipments to the Mideast. The
meeting reportedly produced no
change in the Soviet Union’s in-
sistence that immediate Israeli
withdrawal from occupied terri-
tories as the key to a solution of
the Mideast deadlock.
The agenda items were prompted
by a recent exchange of notes
between the Soviet Union and the
three western powers in which
President Nixon proposed the armsj!
curb, an idea supported by Primed
Minister Harold Wilson of Britain
in his reply to Soviet Premier
Kosygin’s initial letter. The Soviet
Government newspaper Izvestia said
in a front page editorial this week
that only the French reply _ to
Kosygin’s letter was satisfactory.
Izvestia reiterated Kosygin’s com-
plaint that United States support
of Israel was delaying a settlement.
GENERAL ODD BULL
Otto Cohen, Founder of Israel's Largest
To Spotlight Israeli Scene at F.W. Women's Division
Brunch Next Thursday in N-M Garden Room
Otto Cohen, a pioneer in the Israeli kibbutz movement, will be guest speaker at the Fort
Worth Women’s Division Campaign Brunch on Thursday, February 26, 10:30 p.m. in the
Garden Room of Neiman Marcus.
Mr. Cohen leaves Israel in an especially critical and perilous time to bring a message of
utmost importance to the Fort Worth Jewish community. Because of his keen interpretation
of Israel’s problems he was persuaded to come to Fort Worth on his first trip to the States.
Ohe of the founders of Givat Brenner, Israel's largest and best known kibbutz, he'presently
serves in the top position as Administrative officer. Born and educated in Law and Economics
in Germany, he left there in 1935 to escape Hitler and after helping his parents and other mem-
bers of his family settle in Johannesburg, he and his bride decided to settle themselves in
Israel (then Palestine). There they became pioneers in the kibbutz movement and have been
engaged in many activities as Givat Brenner grew from a small agricultural settlement to one
now actively engaged in canning, furniture manufacturing and other industry vital to the
country. Continued on Page 6
