THE QUEST FOR PEACE
Egypt’s President Nasser had signified by saying aye to
American peace proposals. There are some buts attached to
his agreement and some threats. Israeli acceptance is now
necessary in order to take the next step. It is interesting,
however, to note in a column by C.L. Sulzberger in the
New York Times that NATO, of which the United States
is a member, has two goals one of which is “pacifying
Russia’s western border and obtaining recognition of the
existing status quo to free Soviet hands for the contest
In 6ther words, the quest for peace in the Middle East
is not an isolated situation. It is geknipt und gebunden with
the total global maneuverings. Doubtless, were it a matter
for Israel and the Arab countries alone, the issue might have
been settled a longer time ago. If, as press reports indicate,
Russia did not, several days after the Arab losses of the Six-
Day War, supply Egypt with military material and the United
States to whom “the Middle East is more dramatically
perilous although less important..than Europe where1 so
many billions are invested...” decided they wanted peace
in the Middle East sooner, it could have been had.
There is now one phenomenon accelerated by the Six-
Day War which the super powers cannot control and which
might be to the interest of Soviet Union to help-and that is
the Palestinian paramilitary units, the nationalists, the guer-
rillas and the terrorists. This will be a problem for Israel
for years to come and she will need official peace to deal

They say that without his bold
opposition to the extension of ter-

from the hostility of the terrorists.
There are still two Jewish
schools in Lebanon, the Alliance
Israelite Universelle and the Tar-
rab School, each with no more than
a few hundred Jewish pupils.
The community’s only rabbi is
contemplating leaving. The sole
remaining shochet also wished to
do so, but has been persuaded to
stay. There is only one kosher

Jews are trapped with no hope of

A YOUTH LOOKS AT THE LANP
OF ISRAEL AND ITS PEOPLE
BY STEVE WISCHf STAFF WRITER
When one thinks of the Middle East many curiosities
spring to mind. Israel, a tiny democratic nation seems
to be facing the ultimate question of whether or not it
will be able to survive. Surrounded by a scourge of
hostile neighbors, our Israeli cousins now find their
situation intensified by the threat of a big power strug-
gle, which might mean a nuclear confrontation.
While the eyes of the world are focusihg on this
troubled area of the globe, it is pertinent to take a little
closer look at Israel, its land and its people from a first
For instance, do the Israelis face similar problems with
their youth, as the older generation in America has en-
countered? It has been widely reported that foreign
students in Israel have been responsible for the amount
of drug use there, but now that it is there, how are the
Israeli youth reacting?
About the land. Is it really defensible? Furthermore,
which territories do most Israelis feel that their govern-
ment will be willing to concede? Are they optimistic
These and many other questions, from a youth's point
of view, will be answered in a forthcoming series on
"Israel: Its Land And People." The articles will be
backgrounded by interviews in sections of Israel and
Occupied Territories and will include opinions from all
segments of the population.
K IN FLIGHT
The first thing that one realizes upon arriving at Kennedy
Airport's El Al Terminal is that larger accommodations are
in order. For the current traumatic state in the Mideast is not
preventing El Al from filling flights. On the evening of our
departure two El Al flights were leaving Kennedy Airport.
Each of El Al's two terminals, were overflowing with passen-
gers and their families eager to visit Israel.
Amidst the hustle and bustle, we wanted to have a
cup of coffee - with a new found friend. Quarters were so
close and the terminal so packed our purpose was foiled.
At last - boarding, for flight 244 to Lod Airport, was an-
nounced and after having baggage checked for undesirable
objects, we were bussed to our airplane. We were not alone,
however. We soon learned several New York City - police
cars were on hand to ensure a "safe" departure, which
added a certain aire of excitement.
After boarding and being seated, we realized that we were
about to encounter another experience: an entire aircraft
serviced and piloted entirely by Israelis!
El Al's Stewardesses aim to please...
Shortly after take-off, a pretty stewardess passed out
menus, which consisted of: Swiss Steak, Potato Kugel,
mixed vegetables; Beet Root Salad, fresh cherries, cookies,
rolls, coffee and tea - all delicious, and just like a Jewish
mother would prepare - Philip Roth, please take note!
After dinner, passengers became one happy family and
began to converse more freely and before long our stew-
ardess started putting down the window shades.
It is East to Israel, and the sun will rise within the hour.
Conversation continues at a slower pace. Within another
hour passengers began bedding down. Realizing how tired
we are - we, too, retire.
A final thought occurs of anticipating our first hand
visit to the Middle East and what the morrow may bring!
Before too long we can't resist pulling up the window
shades. A red ball of fire rises in the East - It is Earth's life-
giving sun and it is rising over Eretz Yisrael!
ISRAEL POP FESTIVAL —
Following the example of youth all
over the world, Israeli youth have
decided to hold an Israeli pop
festival. They invited pop groups
from abroad to take part in the
festival, along with local en-
tertainment. As part of the at-
mosphere, autos are receiving
special paint jobs, as shown above.
Sen. Muskie Calls on
Administration to Give
Israel 'Visible' Support
WASHINGTON - (J l’A) - Sen.
Edmund Muskie, Democrat of
Maine, has issued his first major
statement on the Middle East
calling on the Nixon ad-
ministration to replace its “in-
tensified rhetoric” on the Middle
East situation with “visible and
concrete support of Israel’s
defense in the form of urgently
needed jet aircraft.” Sen. Muskie
was one of the 76 Senators who last
month made a similar written
appeal to Secretary of State
William P. Rogers.
In his latest statement the 1968
Vice Presidential nominee said:
“We must recognize that the long-
term interest of the United States
in the Middle East are far greater
than in Indochina. . .For months,
American friends and critics have
been uncertain as to our intentions
and our commitment . . . This
deteriorating situation requires
more from the administration
than intensified rhetoric.” He
called for “a significant, credible
response to the Soviet escalation in
Middle East tension” as “the best
security against the outbreak of
major hostilities while we explore
other initiatives for peace.”
